Google Ads for Non-Profits

Google Adwords helps raise awareness for your organization, attract donors, and recruit volunteers on Google Search. Google Ads (formerly known as Google AdWords) program for nonprofit organizations provides access to $10,000 USD every month for text-ads enabling non-profits to reach more people.

What are Google Ads?

Google Ads is a paid form of advertising that shows your ad in search engine results pages. It is commonly known as Pay-Per-Click ads as you pay a certain amount of money only when someone clicks on your ad. Once you choose a keyword, you can find out the cost of the ad when people search for that particular keyword.

The biggest advantage of these ads is that they appear above to next to search results (depending on the ads you purchased), which helps your ad to be seen before organic search results. Google Ads can be expensive for most businesses which is why Google Grant Program is an important opportunity for Nonprofits.

Interestingly, Google Ads help generate interest and traffic even when they are not clicked. As ads are placed in prominent places in search results for competitive keywords, it allows your brand to gain recognition and needed exposure even when users are not looking for your products or giving you monetary donations.

You can use Google Ad Grant to place your ads in prominent places in search pages which will help increase awareness about the work your organization is doing.
