Community Range and Defense Education Center

This fundraiser is focused on the purchase of land and subsequent construction of a shooting range and community education center located in the Northeast region of the United States. Those of you familiar with firearm laws will already know that being a gun owner in this area of the country comes with unique difficulties. This overly complex legal situation, when combined with the machismo and reactionary nature of American gun culture, creates a situation in which many people who want to learn firearm safety do not feel comfortable in doing so. Nobody in the LGBTQ+ or BIPOC communities should need to put up with a range that sells confederate flags or is frequented by those who believe they do not deserve their rights - or worse, their lives. Recently, we have had one of our instructors banned from their local gun club for teaching state-mandated training programs to those who require the ability to defend themselves the most. If you are in a comfortable financial situation and believe that everyone in this country deserves the option of a safe and welcoming place to learn firearm safety and train in self-defense, please consider donating whatever you can.

If you have further concerns, please see some of our Frequently Asked Questions on our website at We will be keeping you updated here and on social media throughout the course of this fundraiser.

Note: Contributions are not tax deductible.

GoFundMe Information: We have formed the LLC and have a business bank account that will hold on to the funds while we continue raising money. Once we are closer to our goal, the majority of the money will be spent on the property with the rest being used towards constructing basic facilities.
