Ways to Give Now

As one of the only truly independent news resources for Catholics and others who struggle with the complex moral and societal issues of the day, NCR believes deeply in the freedom of expression, the need for people to be accurately informed and given the opportunity to discuss the issues and events that take place in the church and wider world.

Our work is possible thanks to the generosity of people like you. Your gift of any size is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your gift.

Annual Appeal

As an independent organization, we rely upon two major campaigns each year, our Friends of NCR Annual Appeal and our annual online Webathon, to provide needed funding. Both of these campaigns make a substantial difference and cover a major portion of our normal operating expenses. We encourage you to join our Friends at the following levels:

John XXIII Society $10,000 and up
Publisher’s Circle $5,000 to $9,999
Circle of Hope Associates $1,000 to $4,999
Editor’s Circle $500 to $999
Beacons of Light $250 to $499
Faithful Friends up to $250

Your gift of any size is greatly appreciated.

Monthly/Quarterly Giving

You can establish a monthly or quarterly giving program providing substantial support to NCR by giving smaller gifts over time. These gifts are designated as “recurring gifts” and can be automatically charged to your credit card or automatically transferred from your bank account. Gifts can be increased, decreased or discontinued at any time. An end-of-the-year contribution summary letter will be sent to you for tax purposes. Please print this authorization form and send it to us to begin giving.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs for charitable gifts made by their employees. Ask your human resources department if your company participates in a matching gift program. Your gift could be doubled or even tripled!

Honoring a Friend, Family Member or Colleague

What better way to honor a friend, family member or colleague by making a tribute gift to NCR to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, graduation or other special occasion, or in dedication to their memory. A special notification advising them of your gift can be sent to them or their family pending your instructions.
