How Can Nonprofit Organizations Apply for Google Ad Grants?

Table of Contents

What is a Google Ad Grant? A Google Ad grant is a program offered by Google that provides eligible nonprofit organizations up to $10,000 per month in free advertising on Google Ads. This grant allows nonprofits to advertise their mission and services on Google’s search engine results pages, driving more traffic to their website, and ultimately increasing their impact.

As a nonprofit organization, you want to reach as many people as possible with your message. One of the most effective ways to do this is by advertising on Google Ads. However, advertising on Google can be expensive, which is why Google offers Google Ad grants for eligible nonprofits. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of applying for a Google Ad grant as a nonprofit organization.

Google Ad Grants’ Eligibility Criteria

Before applying for a Google Ad grant, your nonprofit organization must meet the following eligibility criteria:

1. Your organization must hold valid charity status and be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

2. Your organization must be based in one of the countries where Google Ads is available.

3. Your mission and services must align with one or more of Google’s advertising policies.

4. Your website must comply with all the necessary technical requirements set by Google.

How to Apply for a Google Ad Grant

The application process for a Google Ad grant involves the following steps:

1. Create a Google for Nonprofits account – First, create an account on the Google for Nonprofits website. To be eligible for a Google Ad grant, your nonprofit must first be enrolled in the Google for Nonprofits program.

2. Register with TechSoup – Once your organization is enrolled in the Google for Nonprofits program, you will need to register with TechSoup, an organization that verifies nonprofit status.

3. Apply for a Google Ad grant – After registering with TechSoup, you can apply for the Google Ad grant through the Google Ad grants portal. The application process involves answering a series of questions about your organization and its mission, as well as providing some basic information about your website.

4. Wait for approval – Once you have submitted your application, it may take up to 6 weeks for Google to review and approve your application. If your application is approved, you will receive an email with instructions on how to set up your Google Ads account and start creating ads.
