VO Workshop: Google Advertising For Not for Profits

May 16, 2018, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Google AdvertisingWhen looking to donate money or time, many people will search the internet.  Those appearing at the top of the listings have the best chance of capturing donors or volunteers. 

There are two ways to make it to the top of Google’s listings:

  1. SEO, or search engine optimization, which takes months, even years of hard work; or,
  2. Advertising on Google and other search engines.

Google advertising can jump you to the top of search result listings at no cost. And, it is one of the most effective types of advertising because it captures people in the moment they are searching. 

Google’s Not For Profit Grant Program

As a Not for Profit you are eligible to receive up to $10,000 per month in Google advertising credits.  You can use those credits to advertise your organization’s benefits on Google’s search engine.
