The Underwriting Difference

  1. As a private not-for-profit, community-based organization, the African American Planning Commission does not accept commercial advertising — we rely on “underwriting” a term used to distinguish advertising that recognizes a company’s support of specific not-for-profit organization programs.
  2. At African American Planning Commission, there is are no “commercial blocks” or “commercial advertising as you might hear on a radio station or see in a television commercial. Our underwriting is done by placing your company Ad on our corporate donor page, a very visible page for all site visitors to see.

If your company or organization would like to reach our educated, affluent, diverse, globally hip audience of not-for-profit organization supporters and web visitors with a focused message of who you are, what you do, and how people can contact you, ask us about our underwriting program.
