The Foundation’s activities will be conducted year-round by American Advertising Federation staff in collaboration with active and engaged volunteers and sponsors. Some additional support will come from advertising industry leaders and decision makers. The Foundation's operations will be principally based in Washington, DC, but will also operate nationally. Our work will be funded by grants and miscellaneous donations.
