What is Good For Nothing Fargo?

Good for Nothing is an international movement with 48 verified chapters that host online and offline events to support the change-makers in our communities. The idea of GFN is simple: bring creative energy, ideas, and skills to those already innovating on social issues but doing so with limited resources.

In 2015, Good for Nothing Fargo officially launched and hosted its first ever “gig,” an event in which creatives got together to provide pro bono design, development, and general marketing services to non-profits in the F-M community.

Since the 2017 AAF-ND season, Good for Nothing Fargo has been managed by our board of directors and effectively absorbed by AAF-ND’s “public service committee.” We continue to host annual 24-hour gigs that bring our community’s talented marketers together to support non-profits in need of marketing services.
