A #GivingTuesday Thank You

America Media and Xavier High School in Micronesia are extremely grateful to the 175 (and counting!) donors who contributed more than $11,000, which helped us meet and exceed our goal for #GivingTuesday.

We received donations from over 175 people across 27 states and three countries, including Palau, Guam and Saipan. We are truly grateful for all those who supported this worthy effort. Your gift made all the difference in the world, for them and for us. Thank you!


If you’ve been waiting to give, now is the time! Can you help us reach our “stretch” goal of $13,000? Here is the link to donate: www.americamedia.org/givingtuesday.

All gifts will enable America Media to continue bringing you great content on all platforms, while Xavier High School of Micronesia will continue its mission to educate the students and families of some of the most remote and underdeveloped nations around the globe.

Xavier High School of Micronesia may be in a distant corner of the world, but it is a shining light, a beacon of hope; and America Media leads the conversation about faith and culture because of supporters like you!

Your donation, no matter the size, will be split between our two Jesuit ministries. Thank you again for your generosity and consideration.

We hold you in our prayers now and always.

Sincerely yours in Christ,



Rev. Matthew F. Malone, S.J., 

President & Editor in Chief, America Media

Rev. Dennis Baker, S.J., 

President, Xavier High School

Lay oversight of Catholic bishops is needed—but it should be a process that respects the principle of apostolic succession while providing a check on the successors of the apostles.
