Give the Gift of ANA University Membership

To inspire students and engage the professors who educate them, the ANA Educational Foundation is asking the industry to donate an ANA membership directly to a university of their choice.

As university budgets are extremely tight, especially given the pandemic, donating ANA memberships to universities will unlock tremendous value to both professors and students to incorporate the current reality of marketing and advertising into academia!

Key Benefits for your Organization
