How Your Nonprofit Can Get Free Advertising Money From Google

Do you run a nonprofit business? Imagine what you could do if you could do if your business received $10,000 a month of in-kind advertising from AdWords, Google's online advertising service. You can use AdWords to increase your donations, tell people your story, and recruit volunteers. The Google Ad Grants website allows you to do those things.

With Google Ad Grant, it's easy for people to donate to your organization. When you make it easy for people to donate, people are more likely to donate to your nonprofit.

Google Ad Grants display your ads to people who are performing a Google search for nonprofits that are similar to yours. This ad placement helps you reach people who were not aware of your cause. You can choose to focus your ads locally or globally.

As your ads run, you can use Google Analytics to track your conversations and monitor the ad performance. You will find out which keywords are more effective than others. Google Analytics will also help you determine which ads are recruiting volunteers and driving donations.

Here are a few steps to help you get started with Google Ad Grants

1. Check Your Eligibility

Google for Nonprofits is not available in every country. However, the service is available in more than 50 countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Some of Google's nonprofit services are available outside the Google for Nonprofits program. This chart will help you to determine which services are available in your area.

2. Apply for Google for Nonprofits

In order to be eligible for the Google for Nonprofits program, your organization needs to be a nonprofit organization in good standing in their home countries. The organization must also register with the local TechSoup partner and receive validation of their nonprofit status.

The philanthropic arm of educational organizations qualify for Google for Nonprofits. However, universities, academic institutions, and schools are not eligible. The following organizations are also ineligible for Google for Nonprofits:

• Healthcare and hospital organizations
