Ad Up Hawaii is an off-shoot of Kokua.org who’s core mission has been bringing people together to support one another. By fostering collaboration, Ad Up was born.
Ad Up identified the biggest challenge that many nonprofits face as the ability to market themselves successfully. At the same time found many in the marketing field with these skills, had a desire to make a difference in the community but just didn’t know how.
By pulling the two groups together in a fun marketing competition-style event both groups could benefit, and the results have been overwhelming.
2017 will mark the 4th annual event. Over the years we have created marketing campaigns for fifteen local nonprofits, with the support of hundreds of marketing professionals.
