Take a chance and support NCRF

The National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) is once again holding its Clutch for a Cause fundraiser with an upscale clutch raffled off at the 2023 NCRA Conference & Expo in Houston, Texas. The Miu Miu embellished crossbody bag, valued at approximately $1,400, was graciously donated by NCRF Trustees Tami Keenan, FAPR, RPR, CPE, and Early Langley, RMR.

Raffle tickets are available for purchase now, and the winner will be randomly selected at the Conference Gala on July 29. The winner does not need to be present to win. Tickets are $25 for one, $50 for three, or $100 for six. Proceeds go to NCRF to support Foundation programs. Purchase tickets here or text the keyword clutch to 41444. 

Win a Mexican vacation

Become an NCRF Angel or a recurring Angel by Sept. 1 and be entered to win a weeklong stay in a Junior Suite at a Mexican resort donated by longtime Angel Denise Paternoster, RPR (Ret.), in memory of her beloved husband Frank. The winner will be selected by random drawing via Facebook in September.

Only Angels who are current by Sept. 1 will be eligible for this NCRF getaway.  Join the NCRF Angel family by signing up with monthly ($83.34) or quarterly ($250) donations or an annual donation for $1,000. The total annual donation provides a great 2023 tax write-off and a myriad of benefits, including a listing on the Angels poster at the booth; each Angel donor’s name on the website and in the JCR magazine; an invitation to attend the exclusive VIP NCRF Angel Luncheon in Houston, Texas, this year; and the benefit of knowing that each donation helps NCRF advance its philanthropic programs and mission. Giving back to our profession matters, and this is the perfect way to help other court reporters in their career journeys.

To become an Angel, you may select the recurring donation that works best for your budget by texting keyword NCRFAngel to 41444. Or contact Jill Parker Landsman at, who can help set up your NCRF donation over the phone.

The Angels Program continues to be the most impactful component of the National Court Reporters Foundation’s annual campaign as it supports four key initiatives that are advancing the court reporting and captioning professions:
