We’re less than 24 hours away from our annual #AmericaAnniversary digital giving day! Thank you to the 248 donors who have already made a gift. We’re grateful for that early support!

Tomorrow, America’s 113th Anniversary Giving Day, you can help celebrate America’s past and present, while securing our future for generations to come. We are counting on you to continue our transformation from a print-only magazine into a multi-platform media ministry. During last year’s Anniversary Giving Day, we were able to raise over $200,000 from over 1,000 supporters living in 48 states and 22 countries.

Will you join us this year by making a donation?

This year’s anniversary giving day—April 6—is also on what would have been my mother’s 83rd birthday. To celebrate the late Janet Malone, and how she helped shape who I am today, we have secured an $8,300 matching gift.

We need you on our #AmericaAnniversary to unlock this generous matching gift.

Your support is critical to the success of our mission. America’s content—in the magazine, on podcasts, in videos and online—provides a forum for bold and honest journalism in the pursuit of truth. And on our 113th anniversary, please help America continue our transformation. Your support secures our legacy, and a gift of any amount, large or small, makes an impact.

To become one of the first donors who help transform America, make your gift early at americamedia.org/anniversary.

I promise you that we will labor every day to live up to the trust that you—and our forebears—have placed in us. Together we can secure our legacy.

For the Greater Glory of God,

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