Public Service Projects


The American Advertising Federation of Fort Wayne is committed to bettering our communities through donations of our time and talent. If your non-profit would like to be involved in the Pitch or needs assistance in another way please contact us.




A large part of our mission is to gift scholarships to exceptional students that are majoring in an advertising related field.  We believe that the contribution of scholarships to the education of students in the Fort Wayne area is an investment in our advertising community.  Scholarships are given through The Pitch and at the annual Silver Award Luncheon.


Watch our video.


The Pitch is a yearly competition between the advertising clubs at area colleges and universities.  A non-profit is chosen that has marketing and advertising needs, and the students create a marketing plan to pitch.  This year, the Cinema Center was chosen.  Four school teams pitched ideas to the film society and the University of Saint Francis won with their “think inside the box office” campaign which will run for the next year. The winning schools were given money towards bettering their school's program.


In addition to The Pitch, scholarships are given at the Silver Award Luncheon.  Students apply, send in their portfolio, and are selected by a committee on the board. 




This past year our board lost one of its members, Chris Cage.  He was a past board president, and a vital part of the Fort Wayne advertising community.  He had a kind, enthusiastic, and engaging personality. A scholarship has been set up in his memory by his daughter at his alma mater the University of Dayton.  If you're interested in contributing you can send a check payable to the University of Dayton with "Christian Caggiano Memorial Scholarship" in the memo and send to the following address:

Whether it’s time, talent or treasure, volunteer today to ensure a better tomorrow. Members are invited to join committees, apply for board appointment, and helping with social and fundraising events. If you are interested in becoming more involved with your local chapter, please contact us.
