Google for Nonprofits expands to Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania

With the spread of coronavirus, nonprofits face unique, unprecedented challenges. It is more important now more than ever for them to have access to tools and solutions that will help them work together, work more productively, and share their mission with the online community.

As part of the Google for Nonprofits program, a non-profit organization that meets the requirements can request an account registration and start using the following Google tools for free:

  • G Suite for non-profit organizations is a suite of software that will help your team work more efficiently online. With smart and secure business apps like Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Drive, and Google Meet, you can focus on your mission. In addition, until September 30, 2020, premium features of the Google Meet application are available to all G Suite users. Learn more about how to activate G Suite applications.
  • Ad Grants is a program that provides non-cash grants of up to $ 10,000. per month for advertising on Google Search. Thanks to such advertising, non-profit organizations can attract donations, disseminate information about their organization and look for volunteers until the situation around the distribution of COVID-19 changes. The Ad Grants program will be available in Ukraine until October 2020. More information about advertising grants from Google.
  • YouTube for Nonprofits offers premium features to nonprofits to help them reach a global audience and increase influence through their YouTube channel. Learn how to sign up for the YouTube Nonprofit Program.
  • Google Earth and Google Maps provide nonprofits with powerful data visualization tools to help them demonstrate their work and impact. Learn more about how to activate Maps tools.
