graphIs your non-profit eligible for Google Ad Grants?
To be eligible for the Google Ad Grants program, organizations must:

  • Be a registered charity;
  • Acknowledge and agree to the application's required certifications regarding nondiscrimination and donation receipt and use;

  2. You are required to actively manage the AdWords account by logging in monthly and making at least one change to your account every 90 days, based on review of your account performance. Your account is subject to automatic pausing or cancellation without notification should you fail to make any changes in your account for over 90 days.
  3. Your ads must reflect the mission of the approved non-profit organization and your keywords must be relevant to the non-profit’s programs and services.
    Strictly commercial advertising is not allowed through this program. If you intend to promote products or services, 100% of the sales and/or proceeds must support your program.
