Give Now

Your gift to NCR sustains the values that inspired the founders of NCR 60 years ago to use the tools of journalism to inform readers about the life of the church in the world. NCR was born from a desire for a lay-led, independent publication. By giving to NCR, your voice becomes part of the NCR mission, and we are grateful to have you with us on this journey.

You can support the NCR mission in several ways:

  • Donate online here
  • Mail your check payable to NCR: 115 E. Armour Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64111
  • Use Paypal to donate
  • Give monthly from your checking account. Click here to get the authorization form or call us at (816) 968-2233 to set up a monthly credit card donation.

IRA Charitable Distribution

Donors who are 70 ½ and older can donate to NCR through their IRA. U.S. tax law allows up to $100,000 of a required minimum distribution to be transferred to an eligible charity, thus reducing the donor’s tax burden from the distribution.

To donate through your IRA, contact the financial institution that manages your account and request the transfer. Provide the institution with NCR’s tax ID number: 43-0815211. 

Please call the Development Department at (816) 968-2233 or email to let us know the gift is coming.
