Advertising for Good is a United States-based advertising firm with a social mission. Much like ‘Do Good Advertising,’ Advertising for Good is a place for social businesses and non-profit organizations alike to increase awareness through marketing, communications and ad campaigns.

Advertising for Good splits its business plan into three different, but connected, aspects. Firstly, the company promotes purpose-based action plans for corporations. Secondly, Advertising for Good helps non-profits reach their goals with communications and marketing strategies. Thirdly, the firm connects non-profit organizations and corporations together. The final aspect is one that is the most interesting, and also has the most potential, because of how Advertising for Good can make the most of their available resources.

Some of Advertising for Good’s clients have included: Atlanta Ballet, a center for dance education; MAP International, a global Christian organization focusing on providing health solutions to 119 developing countries; and L.E.A.D. Uganda, a student-led organization that focuses on Ugandan youth.

Advertising for Good also has a blog that intersects the advertising and social change worlds. It’s a social media resource that covers both big businesses that are socially-conscious in their marketing strategy and diary-style entries on how Advertising for Good came to be the inspiring business that it is.

If more and more companies like Advertising for Good continue to emerge, it will open a a new space that redefines what marketing and advertising mean—and the social changes that they can make.
