Established in 1997, the 4A's Foundation was created to galvanize the industry around improving the level of diversity within advertising and media agencies. For over 15 years, the Foundation has been providing financial support to multicultural individuals studying advertising, media, and/or the creatives arts, as well as resources to programs and initiatives in NYC that cover the following categories for our industry: Education, Employment, Outreach, Engagement, and Retention. Simultaneously, it engages colleges, universities and recognized portfolio schools, which help identify high potential students willing and able to make a difference in our community.
