Working Together to Give Back

In addition to these opportunities, each year Ad 2 Austin supports a local nonprofit organization and together we produce an advertising campaign completely free for the client. This annual campaign is Ad 2 Austin's chance to give back to the community, as well as an excellent opportunity for members to gain real-life experience in advocacy advertising.
