Second matching grant met; Third now available

 |  NCR Today

Your response to our pleas for help have been tremendous. We’ve already matched our second grant, from Tom Bertelsen, and we’ve received a third matching grant for the day.

Longtime NCR reader John Weiser has pledged to match your donations dollar for dollar for the next $1,000. Double your donation by acting now. Your $50 can become $100 if you act now.

John has a great vision for what he calls NCR’s digital future. For most of NCR’s nearly 50 years, we were tied to print circulation. If you didn’t see an NCR newspaper, you didn’t know NCR. The emerging online world makes NCR available to countless Catholics all over the world. Do you know is viewed in more than 200 nations and territories every month? That’s the editorial reach that John wants to encourage, and that’s why he’s challenging you to make a donation today.

NCR has gone global. If that is important to you, please be generous in your donations today. (And act now and you can double your gift through the matching grant.)

We only come to you like this one week a year. The other 51 weeks a year, you have unfettered access to the news, analysis and commentary that you value so much.

"NCR's reporters provide a completely independent approach to investigative reporting of issues relating to our Catholic faith. And does it on a daily basis, which is easily acessible online. Please support NCR."

- NCR Board member
Tom Bertelsen

Help us meet this goal -- or, better yet, surpass it -- and we'll go back to unrestricted access to the reporting, analysis and commentary you have come to expect from NCR.
