Why Every Nonprofit Needs a Google Ad Grant
Google Ad Grants represent one of the biggest opportunities in nonprofit marketing: $10,000/month in free advertising.
What is a Google Ad Grant?
The Google Ad Grant program is one of the biggest missed opportunities for organizations. Organizations that have successfully set up a Google Ad Grant have raised over $80K+ or acquired 100K+ email addresses.
So, what’s the catch? To qualify for Google Ad Grants, your organization must:
- Begin by applying to Google for Nonprofits. Your organization must hold valid charity status. Please see the Google for Nonprofits site for definitions of charity status in your country. Governmental entities and organizations, hospitals and medical groups, schools, academic institutions, and universities are not eligible for Google for Nonprofits, but philanthropic arms of educational institutions are eligible.
- Acknowledge and agree to Google’s required certifications regarding nondiscrimination and donation receipt and use.
- Have a high-quality website that meets the Ad Grants website policy.
- Get approved through the Ad Grants pre-qualification process after your organization is enrolled in Google for Nonprofits.
