Are grand jurors paid for their service?

Grand jurors are paid for their service. Each prospective grand juror receives $20 for the first day of appearance and then $60 for the second and any subsequent days of appearance. Grand jurors may donate their pay to a number of organizations that have been approved by the Denton County Commissioners Court. A total donation made by both petit and grand jurors to those organizations averages about $75,000 annually.
