Why is Giving Back Magazine different?

A non-profit advertising company – that’s rare. According to the Guardian, “Google and Facebook attracted one-fifth of global advertising spending” in 2016. These corporations could have been founded as non-profits. Instead, they are committed to maximizing their profits for the shareholders. We have no shares, no shareholders.

  • Giving Back Magazine is a local media company committed to promoting what is good in our community – good people, good businesses, good non-profit organizations.
  • When a business owner chooses to advertise with us, in print and online, she or he demonstrates a commitment to being engaged with and giving back to the Charlottesville community.
  • Instead of stocking our publication in grocery stores and boxes, our magazine is mailed directly by the US Postal Service to over 62,500 households and businesses in the Charlottesville / Albemarle area.
  • Everyone using the coupons or consulting the businesses in this magazine makes a statement: We want to promote what’s good in Charlottesville and Albemarle.
