Why to Give

When you support the American Marketing Association Foundation (AMAF) you give not just money, but tools and resources to assist nonprofit organizations in marketing more effectively and raising funds, so they can accomplish their mission of helping those who need it most.

The AMAF not only supports national and international nonprofit organizations, it also champions and supports excellence and diversity in the marketing profession through industry awards, international journal distribution to colleges and universities in emerging economies, as well as Valuing Diversity Scholarships to underserved populations.

The AMAF is part of a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization (the AMA).  All donations are tax-exempt to the fullest extent of the law.
