Public Service

AAF-Dayton Public Service Advertising

Advertising provides the major impetus in informing the public of the many worthy causes and programs developed for a better quality of life. We as advertisers, advertising agencies, marketers, and media have the power to make a great impact in the public service area. It is in this spirit of public service that each year a local non-profit organization is the recipient of a media campaign donated by AAF-Dayton members. The campaign may consist of radio, TV, print, outdoor, web, and/or promotional material.

If you know of an organization that would be appropriate for this undertaking, contact:
