As a 501(c)3, TWAW Shooting Chapters relies upon membership dues, donations, and sponsorships to continue our mission to Educate, Equip, and Empower women.

Why Fundraise on a National Level?

Together, we have an important mission to educate, equip, and empower women all across our country in the world of firearms and self-defense. Our Board has refused to raise the annual membership dues in an effort to keep membership affordable for all. We have also worked diligently to establish partnerships with incredible companies to support our mission.

TWAW Shooting Chapters has been fortunate to offer incredible opportunities to our chapter leaders throughout the country. These opportunities include:

  • Extending discounted/free training to our Regional Trainers and State Leaders. Through training, they are able to share these benefits, the knowledge, and skills with fellow leaders in their regions/states;
    • Regional Trainers serve as instructor mentors to help build up our Chapter Leader Instructors. Regional Trainers have extensive training as firearms instructors and an exceptional ability to facilitate and nurtureinstructional growth.
    • State Leaders act as mentors and unifiers – helping plan state and regional events, unify state chapters, guide and assist leaders through administration, and assist in the launch and ongoing operations of chapters within their state.
  • Offering scholarships to Chapter Leaders to earn instructor certifications;
  • The National Leadership Conference
    • This incredible event is an opportunity for chapter leaders to gather in one location for a long weekend of training, education, and sisterhood. Seminars focus on skills and knowledge needed to be a successful chapter leader and firearms instructor. Live fire and range experiences add to the depth and breadth of our leader’s already extensive knowledge.
