Marketing dollars are moving dramatically into Native Advertising and the implication for consumers isn't good, as you already know. The consequences for very young children, who have been the targets of Native Advertising for years, are unsettling.

FoolProof has decided to take a deep interest in the impact of Native Advertising on the consumers' decision-making process.

FoolProof is one of the first consumer groups to tackle the issue of Native Advertising — advertising that masks itself as objective information. Watch our introductory video on the issue.

And read two of our articles on this issue:

Our First Steps

FoolProof's partnership with the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood brings us in close collaboration with the experts on the impact of Native Advertising on children.

List Serve

FoolProof's Native Advertising List Serve and Native Advertising Study Group bring together experts to help FoolProof plan steps to educate consumers about Native Advertising's impact on decision-making.

Current Programs

FoolProof already includes articles and videos about Native Advertising in our work with students and adults. Because of the timely nature of the Native Advertising challenge, FoolProof is scheduling monthly features on Native Advertising developments for all our constituencies.

New Tax Benefit For Donors
(in 2020 only!)

The CARES Act enables tax payers who take the standard deduction to deduct $300 in annual charitable contributions as an "above the line" adjustment to income. This increases to $600 per married couple, and can help reduce a donor's taxable income while giving to a cause.

Will you consider taking advantage of this unique tax benefit before the end of the year to help FoolProof create a more equitable future?


Note: a donation from a donor advised fund (DAF) does not qualify for this new deduction.
