Google Adwords Grant for Nonprofits – Application & Management Service

by | Jun 14, 2018

The Google AdWords Grant program has been around for years but many nonprofits are still unaware it’s available to them. The complete program details are available online but to summarize: any qualified nonprofit may apply for $10,000 of monthly AdWords credit. This translates to approximately 5,000 visitors each and every month!

The application process requires registering with Techsoup and submitting details of your organization including mission and verification of nonprofit status. Once you’re accepted into the program, you will have access to create your account: selecting keywords, writing ad copy, defining landing pages, managing budgets and setting bids. It’s worth noting that in early 2018, Google began enforcing stringent performance requirements including a click-through rate of over 5%, bidding no more than $2 per click, and other restrictions that can get organizations banned from the program if they are no compliant.
