Google Ad Grants
When you do a search on Google, you may notice the first couple results say “Ad” next to them. This means companies have paid Google through the Google Ad program to appear on your search results.
This type of advertising can be extremely pricy, but lucky for nonprofits, you can enjoy Google Ads for free!
With the Google Ad Grants program, nonprofits are granted a monthly advertising budget of $10,000 a month. That equals a budget of $329 a day for advertising!
Using this program is an incredibly effective way to gain visibility not only for your website, but for your cause. Appearing on Google searches will allow you to access potential volunteers, donors, or anyone that wants to know more about your organization and its mission.
