Spring fund drive goal met! NCR thanks its generous readers

Spring Fund Drive Mets Goal. In the late night hours of May 13, you generous readers pushed us over the $100,000 goal we had for your 2018 Spring Fund Drive. We have only two words for you: Thank you! Add two more: Thank you very much!


A message from Caitlin Hendel, CEO/Publisher of NCR

Spring Fund Drive: If you find yourselves nodding in agreement with something you've read in NCR, if you depend on NCR to stay with the Catholic Church, please join us by becoming a member of NCR or, if you prefer, with a one-time gift.


NCR's weeklong adventure begins! Join us on our journey

Spring Fund Drive: would dry up and wither away if we stopped investing in it. Please don't let that happen. Support the work National Catholic Reporter has been doing for almost 54 years.


From the editor and publisher: NCR is moving Forward

NCR Forward. We are jointly writing this message to you to affirm our commitment to keeping our online journalism open and available to as many readers as possible. To do that, we need your help.
