Each year, America's subscription revenues cover only a portion of our publishing costs. The balance must be raised through other sources such as advertising and fundraising appeals. Gifts to America are tax deductible since America Press Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. You can contribute online at our donations page.
The America Associates program encourages readers and friends to contribute unrestricted gifts to help meet the day-to-day operating costs involved in producing a high quality Catholic journal of opinion and maintaining an award-winning Web site. This support helps us attract the best writers, select photos and artwork that enhance the reader's enjoyment, produce podcasts, slide shows and videos that augment articles and opinion pieces on our Web site, and support education by offering tools such as our teachers' resource page and newsletter.
With your help, we can maintain our place as the nation's foremost Catholic weekly magazine and expand our efforts to introduce America to young Catholics eager to experience the rich dialogue and debate America has to offer.
We urge you to consider becoming an America Associate. Your membership at the $150 level or higher provides you the option of having your America subscription extended for one year. All America Associates are recognized annually for their contributions to our ministry with the publication of their names by giving level in the print edition of America, usually in March or April. The following giving level are used for recognition.
