There is an alternate method of entry for non-supporters (as required by law). It's outlined in the rules at the bottom of the giveaway page. @Enkidu556 also posted some info on page 3 of this thread.Is it only supporting members who are entered into the drawing or anyone who makes a minimum $5.00 donation?
Hi.....there is a mail-in postcard option that you may use.
"ALTERNATE METHOD OF ENTRY (AMOE): Members who have not made a donation may enter by sending a postcard (only postcards will be accepted) to Northwest Firearms Giveaway, PO Box 83286, Portland, OR 97283. One postcard entry accepted per person per week of the giveaway entry period, up to the maximum limit of 5 total entries per person per giveaway. Mailed entries must arrive before 6:00PM PST on the final date of the giveaway entry period and include the following: Giveaway Name, your Northwest Firearms registered username, your full name, your mailing address, your email address, and your phone number so that we may notify you if you are a winner.

For the entire set of rules go here:
DonatedNorthwest Firearms is happy to announce the
Northwest Firearms 2020 Fall Fundraiser
We hold these twice yearly events to raise funds necessary to keep Northwest Firearms online. With traditional ad networks such as Google refusing to do business with firearm websites, we rely on support from our members to pay our bills (read more about this here and here). Without your contributions this community wouldn't be here.
$5 or $500, everything helps! You've probably noticed the donation meter on the sidebar -- we'll be updating it daily to reflect our donations so far.
For those of you looking for something a bit more permanent, we're now offering Lifetime Memberships for all Supporting Member levels!
Support NWFA and win!
To show our appreciation, at the end of this fundraiser we're giving away 20 prizes valued at over $4,000!
Supporting Members receive between one and five entries based on their highest level of support. Now is a great time to upgrade!
We'd like to thank Let Freedom Ring, Buster Beaver Design, Primary Arms, Highline Firearms, Broken Top Solutions, NWFA Member Prosser, and NWFA Member Dungannon for their generous prize donations. Companies who wish to donate can do so up to the date of the giveaway, so stay tuned for more prizes!
All entries must be received by October 29th, 2020 no later than 6pm.
Winners will be drawn and announced the evening of October 29th, 2020 at 7pm.[/SIZE]
great tip! Who know!? I am here now looking to throw in.Make sure to enter the contest after you donate. I almost didn't cause I didn't realize it wasn't automatic. Just want to make sure no one makes that mistake.
I'm pretty sure your current support already let's you enter the contest if you just go to the bottom of the contest prize page. And if you do still want to upgrade just click where it says donate and it will take you to the support membership page and you can select there what you'd like to upgrade to.I am already a silver supporter right now, is there a way to upgrade my membership with a donation?
You need to become a supporting member to enter through the site, i believe. There is a post towards the bottom of page 3 with alternate methods of entering.I just read about having to formally enter. It says I’m not eligible...?
Did I do something wrong?
I have donated a couple times this week...
