AAF-RDU PSA Call for Non-Profits


We’re now accepting applications from local non-profits for the 2014-2015 Public Service Initiative. Each year, AAF-RDU partners with local universities and industry professionals to develop and implement a public service announcement (PSA) campaign for a non-profit organization based in the Triangle area that needs assistance in publicizing its cause. With the success of last year’s campaign, we look forward to offering this opportunity to other deserving non-profits. Please contact psa@aaf-rdu.org for more information.
