ADVERTISING POLICY

GatherDC features events, organizations, and topics based on editorial discretion. For guaranteed promotion, paid advertising is available. We delineate paid content as “Sponsored” or “Paid Ad” or “#Ad” on our newsletter, blog, and on social media.  The views and opinions expressed by the organizations and individuals who advertise with GatherDC do not represent those of the organization GatherDC and/or any/all contributors to GatherDC. We reserve the right to refuse or terminate advertising to any advertiser that misleads, offends, engages in or depicts hateful speech, bullying, violence, illegal activity, drug use, or excessive drinking.

GatherDC does not promote one form of Judaism over the other and does not represent or endorse any political views as an organization. We accept submissions across the spectrum of political, religious, and philosophical differences. Advertising submissions that violate our policy will be rejected.

All ads are subject to the review and approval of GatherDC staff. We reserve the sole right to request modifications to any ad, and to reject or remove any ad that does not comply with our policy.

WHY WE CHARGE FOR ADVERTISING

GatherDC charges for advertising because being an impartial organization in Jewish DC is essential to our mission. Charging for ads ensure that we don’t prioritize one group, organization, event, or synagogue over the other (in addition to helping us raise much needed money for our organization). Before we charged for advertising, we had no way of discerning between which groups/events we would feature on our platforms besides who reached out and asked first and certainly could not feature them all. We felt this was not fair to our community members or the organizations we are trying to uplift. So, we include all calendar events on our website and in our newsletter free of charge as a way for organizations to promote their events fairly to community members, and separately charge for paid advertising for more significant features.

If our listed pricing is outside of your budget, we would be happy to work together to come up with a price that works better for you/your organization.

ADVERTISING ANALYTICS

GatherDC will provide you with advertising analytics when asked for this information. We track the open and click thru rate with ads placed in our newsletters, the viewership of ads and sponsored posts on our website, and the reach, impressions, and engagement with social media ads.
