A message from the editor on the 110th anniversary of ‘America’


Today’s the day!

Building on the tradition of our 110-year-old flagship magazine, we encourage you to give today in support of our #AmericaAnniversary.


Last year, we were able to raise over $20,000 in just one day, from over 200 supporters in 36 different states. Now that’s impact! Let’s see if we can build on that success again this year.

Why would you give to America today? Because telling the stories that matter most makes all the difference, for the church and world, now more than ever.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Show your impact by making a gift at americamag.org/anniversary.
  • Invite your family and friends to donate today.
  • Offer a matching challenge gift!
  • Tell us why you support America (by responding to this email!).
  • Simply share our content—videos, social media posts, emails and our donation link—with your family, friends and coworkers.

For the past 110 years our church needed our team at America. And today, on our #AmericaAnniversary, we need you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. Matthew F. Malone, S.J.
President & Editor in Chief

P.S. Please consider making a gift today at americamag.org/anniversary.

In death, what we thought was lost is, wondrously, restored to us. What we feared could never be accomplished is achieved.

Before my illness I frequently thought of life from the perspective of what I had accomplished. Throughout my illness, God has reminded me that what is most important is what we do for other people and that he is really in charge.
