Endowment Gifts: Introducing the Tom Fox Fund

In 2016, the NCR Board of Directors established the Tom Fox Fund to Sustain Independent Catholic Journalism (Tom Fox Fund,) in honor of Tom’s 36 years of dedicated service to NCR as editor and publisher. The board recognizes the urgency to keep NCR’s independent voice alive, as newspapers are threatened by intense economic pressures. At a time when digital technology has expanded the readership and influence of the National Catholic Reporter--making it easily accessible worldwide--declining print subscriptions has limited our operating revenue.

The NCR Board has set a goal of $10M to support NCR’s journalism in perpetuity. We have 100% board participation in helping us achieve this goal! The response by NCR’s loyal and generous donors has been extraordinary with nearly half of the goal raised already.

By making a gift to the Tom Fox Fund you are investing in the future of independent Catholic journalism. All gifts are invested to provide perpetual income in support of NCR’s journalism, in accordance with NCR’s investment policy. Gifts can be made through any number of means. Simply designate your gift to the TFF. If you prefer to spread your gift commitment over time, multi-year pledges are welcome.

And finally, consider making a designation through your will or estate plan.
