PSAs for NPOs

‘Olelo’s  PSAs for NPOs project offers O’ahu’s 501(c)3, non-profit organizations a quick and easy way to create simple public service announcements at no cost. All you have to do is develop a short message sharing info about your organization’s mission, and then email us to schedule a recording session at one of our Community Media Centers.

Recording times and locations vary, please email us at for the next available recording times.

It’s easy to participate:

  • Designate a spokesperson from your O`ahu 501C3 organization
  • Develop a thirty or sixty second message about your organization*
  • Please ensure your message is evergreen (without dates) and does not promote fundraising activity or request donations.
  • Email us a copy of your organization’s logo on a flash drive. Please make sure the logo is a high resolution graphic with  .jpeg, png, tiff or .gif extensions.
  • Write a tagline or brief slogan of your group’s mission. (This is optional; see below for a sample.)
  • We will add your  spokesperson’s name, the organization’s name and contact information. Please bring a business card.
  • The background will be neutral; don’t wear white, black or small busy patterns.
  • A teleprompter will not be available, so memorize and practice your message (don’t worry – you’ll have a few chances to get it right).
  • One PSA per organization per  year
  • Complete this form and email it to us at to schedule a recording session.

*It’s ok if your message is not exactly thirty or sixty seconds, but the shorter the better for the PSA format.

‘Olelo will air your message on all of its channels and we’ll email you a copy for your use. We will also identify the PSA as a service of ‘Olelo Community Media.
