The New Criterion

Quite simply, the best cultural review in the world
- John O’Sullivan


An urgent appeal from The New Criterion

by Emily Esfahani Smith

Posted: Dec 31, 2012 12:35 PM

Thanks to our readers and online community, The New Criterion is now closer than ever to its goal of raising $340,000 by the end of the year!

Since launching our online campaign on December 20, hundreds of you have come forward to support the efforts of The New Criterion and with contributions big and small.

However, The New Criterion needs additional donors to contribute to this online appeal by midnight tonight if we are to reach our goal.

Even as our masters in Washington steer us towards their fiscal cliff, you can help avoid another by supporting The New Criterion's end-of-year appeal. If you value The New Criterion's cultural criticism, it's now easier than ever to give back through the magazine's one-click online donation system.

If you have yet to participate in this fundraising drive, please consider doing so at this link. We need your help to meet our goal before year's end! You can read more about our campaign here.

We're almost there! Please consider making a special gift to The New Criterion today.
