NCR Forward: FAQs about Membership

What is the cost of a membership?
You can become a member for as little as $5 per month.

What does a membership include?
Your NCR Forward membership includes Inside NCR, a weekl members-only e-newsletter written by reporters, editors and contributors. Members are also tapped to share ideas through newsroom surveys and polls; invitations to events; and NCR’s annual impact statement, a special report for members.

What kinds of events do you have?
Our reporters and contributors give talks and lectures at parishes, colleges and conferences around the country. NCR members are invited to attend these special talks in their area. Members are also notified of upcoming NCR Publishing Company exhibits, with hopes you can attend events to meet our staff and connect with other members.

Does this membership include a subscription to the paper?
No, it does not. NCR Forward is a digital membership program, designed to offer online readers a way to support our news organization through monthly giving. If you currently receive National Catholic Reporter in the mail, you will continue to do so as part of your paid subscription.

Does this membership include eNCR?
No, subscriptions to eNCR are sold separately from membership. If you currently receive eNCR, you will continue to do so as part of your paid subscription.

What will happen to my print subscription of National Catholic Reporter?
NCR will continue to print a newspaper. Your subscription is not affected in any way by this online membership program.

Will I need a login and a password to read NCRonline?
At this time there will not be a login. It is a feature we will be adding down the road as we are able to offer more membership benefits.
