About AD UP Hawaii

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.

2019 will mark the 5th annual event. Over the years we have created marketing campaigns for over 20 local nonprofits, with the support of hundreds of marketing professionals.

We are 100% pro bono volunteers coming together and using our skills to make a difference in our community.
