The NRA Foundation recently sent a letter to its members stating Yeti, the Austin-based ice chest company, decided to cut ties with its foundation.
The letter, dated April 20, states the company “declined to do business” with the non-profit organization “without prior notice.” The NRA Foundation says the company only said it will no longer sell products to the foundation.
The nonprofit says it raises money to support youth programs nationwide through programs for future hunters, bikers and other outdoor activities.
“That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed,” wrote Marion P. Hammer, who is a past president of the NRA.
The end of the letter includes Yeti’s contact page and its corporate office address.
KXAN has reached out to Yeti for a comment but we have not received a response.
In the past few months, numerous companies have dropped their discount programs for NRA members.
