Nonprofit opportunity to reach students on campus this fall

Campus Media Group has begun accepting applications for the 2011/2012 College Newspaper PSA Program.

Every year, Campus Media selects one nonprofit organization that has an important message to share with college students. We will work to have that organization’s PSA ad placed in some of the nation’s top college and university newspapers free of charge for the 2011-2012 school year. Where available, online ads can also be provided to papers having an online edition. Hundreds of college newspapers throughout the United States participated last year, donating thousands of dollars in free advertising space.

Campus Media Group is a college marketing agency that represents more than 1,800 college newspapers nationally. Its extensive experience working to place ads for national brands has given Campus Media the ability to work with student publications to also help non-profit organizations who rely on donated media space.

In previous years, Campus Media has worked to build awareness for organizations such as: Inspire USA, The Campus Kitchens Project, the National Council on Problem Gambling, and the National Students of AMF.

Anastasia Goodstein of the Inspire USA Foundation, says, “Being chosen for the College Newspaper PSA program was wonderful for ReachOut.com. Our ads ran in hundreds of newspapers across the country driving traffic to our site, which offered resources and inspirational real stories from college students who have made it through a tough time. Working with Campus Media Group was a breeze and a pleasure. I highly recommend any non-profit organization trying to reach college students to apply for this program.”

This program is open to nonprofit organizations in the U.S. Those organizations looking for national exposure to a college audience about a cause that will resonate with students are encouraged to apply.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Campus Media Group to get the word out to students about ReachOut.com,” said Jack Heath, founder and CEO of the Inspire U.S.A. Foundation. “With suicide being the second leading cause of death among college students, these ads will hopefully let them know they are not alone and that others have made it through tough times.”

The ‘We Can Help Us’ campaign provides an opportunity to generate hope among students who are going through a tough time across the United States. The PSAs seek to convey that they are not alone in their struggles with emotional and mental health problems. It was created in collaboration with SAMHSA (The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), the Ad Council, DDB New York and the Inspire USA Foundation.
