MSW's Matching Grant

We are in the final 48 hours of our NCR Webathon. I am profoundly grateful to those of you who have already given. But, in an effort to put us over the top, and meet our goal, I am making a matching grant offer. If we raise $5,000 from conservatives today, I will not say a bad word about George Weigel for a fortnight. If we raise $5,000 from liberals today, I will not say a bad word about LCWR for a month.

Seriously -- I know we all have many claims upon our charitable giving. But, I know that many of you enjoy commenting on this blog, some applauding, more objecting. I think that at NCR, we do our part to provoke controversy, raising issues that do not get raised elsewhere in the Catholic press, arguing amongst ourselves, too, and that many of you enjoy the back-and-forth. Please help keep it going.

Support independent reporting on important issues.
