Ad 2 DC Public Service

Ad 2’s Public Service initiative distinguishes Ad 2 from other industry-related organizations. Since the early 1960’s, Ad 2 chapters from across the country have been providing pro-bono advertising and marketing campaigns to non-profit organizations in their local communities. Together, Ad 2 chapters have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, secured millions in donated media and increased volunteers for numerous organizations. To date, over 300 non-profit marketing campaigns have been executed by Ad 2 chapters. Campaigns are showcased each year at the AAF National Conference during the Ad 2 National Public Service Competition.
