Raising awareness is a critical component of running a successful and fulfilling nonprofit organization. A common challenge is finding a way to spread the word of your service and benefits without the advertising budget of a for-profit entity.
Although it is not widely advertised, Google offers up to $10,000 per month in free search engine advertising for many nonprofit organizations through its Google for Nonprofits grant program!
Overview Video of the Google Ads Grants Program
I created a video to provide a high-level overview of the program, who’s eligible to participate, and the application process:
Google Ads Grants Eligibility
The Google Ad Grants program is available to just about any 501c3 organization, except for “governmental entities and organizations, hospitals and medical groups, schools, academic institutions:” however, “philanthropic arms of educational institutions are eligible.”
It also requires compliance with the Google Ad Grants website policy.
Google Ads Grants Application Process
The main phases of the Google Ad Grants application process are as follows:
- See if your organization is eligible for a Google Ad Grant.
- Apply for a Google for Nonprofits account. For nonprofits in the US, it generally takes between 2-14 business days for TechSoup to verify your organization.
- Submit the Google Ad Grant eligibility form. This process should take about 20 minutes.
- Confirm that you’ve completed your Google Ads Grant eligibility form. This may seem redundant since you just submitted the form in the previous step, however you’ll have to go back into your Google for Nonprofits account to click a checkbox to confirm that you’ve completed the eligibility form.
- Submit your activation request in your Google for Nonprofits account. Once your request has been submitted, the Ad Grants team will update you regarding that status of your request as soon as possible.
Once your activation request has been approved, you’ll have to build out your Google Ads campaigns in a very specific manner according to Google’s strict guidelines for this program.
