Today’s the day to dream big!

Giving Tuesday

Today’s the day to dream big! You can change lives this #GivingTuesday by supporting two Jesuit ministries committed to excellence, faith and service: Brooklyn Jesuit Prep and America Media.

Brooklyn Jesuit Prep is a middle school that provides a quality, tuition-free education to boys and girls in Brooklyn, N.Y. You can invest in the students, just like the school’s faculty and staff does each and every day. The school invests in their dreams and challenges them to dream bigger. “We invest by working to break cycles of poverty. We invest by building a strong, Jesuit, Catholic community that goes out to serve,” said Mario Powell, S.J., President of Brooklyn Jesuit Prep.

Your donation today, no matter the size, will be split between Brooklyn Jesuit Prep and America Media. And because of the generosity of a few donors, the first $1,500 we raise will be matched!

Your gift will change lives. Here’s how you can enable the students to dream big:

  • Make your gift today at americamedia.org/givingtuesday.
  • Share this donate link with your friends and family, encouraging them to give today.
  • To make a donation over the phone, offer a matching challenge gift or if you need any help, contact James Cappabianca at 212-515-0101 or jcappabianca@americamedia.org.
  • Share our content—videos, social media posts, emails and donation link—with your family, friends and coworkers.

We are grateful for your support as we dream bigger. Know that your loyal support and trust in America Media and Brooklyn Jesuit Prep means so much to us and truly changes lives.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Matthew F. Malone, S.J.

President & Editor in Chief
