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. Ad 2 DC handpicks one local DC metro area non-profit each year to receive a fully-integrated pro-bono marketing campaign that includes marketing collateral, media, public relations and more.

Ad 2 DC's 2015-2016 Public Service Campaign for Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) was awarded first place at the American Advertising Federation's National Public Service Competition on June 5, 2016. You can check out their video below to find out how Art Sparks Creativity.
