What is Google Ad Grants?

$10,000 per month is a pretty penny and can go a long way toward supporting your organization. So what exactly is Google Ad Grants? This in-kind advertising is for eligible nonprofits and provides access to Google’s advertising services. In-kind grants offer donations through goods, services, or time rather than money. Simply put, these ad grants are up to $10,000 worth of credits that can be used through Google Ads’ online advertising platform. 

You can use these credits to develop mission-driven text ads that reach people interested in supporting your cause. Whether you’re looking to inspire donations, build awareness, recruit volunteers, or do all the above, these ad grants can be another tool in your digital marketing toolbox to maximize your budget and empower your communities. 

Get the best results from your digital advertising by following Google Ads’ best practices, like performing keyword research, setting up conversion tracking, and linking to relevant landing pages. That way, you can reach an audience as passionate about making a difference as you are.

How Google Ad Grants Works For Your Nonprofit

The internet and social media have profoundly impacted how we connect with people. Captivating blog posts amplify previously unheard voices. Compelling videos share a story. An internet search can spark conversation. With every like, share, and engagement, you are the click of the button away from forging connections that help you reach your vision for a brighter tomorrow. 

With targeted digital ad campaigns, you can reach your passionate audience and be that much closer to sparking a movement that ignites change and empowers your communities. Google Ad Grants is a program that helps your cause grow and reach new audiences through its digital advertising resources.

Raise Awareness

With a market share of 81.95%, Google is the leading search engine worldwide. No wonder organizations flock to advertise on Google—it’s where their audience is. 

Just imagine it. Let’s say someone is interested in helping otters and searches for “otter rehabilitation center near me.” (Let’s just say someone we know did, in fact, search for this recently. We can’t blame them. Who doesn’t want to help rehabilitate a cuddly little water puppy?) That person will find your organization’s website if your nonprofit specializes in this area. You just got another opportunity to educate someone interested in your cause. This person can learn about wildlife conservation from you and choose to support your animal welfare goals. 

And that’s the beauty of search advertising! Your ad pops up when someone searches for keywords relevant to your nonprofit’s mission. Now they know who you are, what you do, why it’s important, and how they can help.

Of course, this applies to all organizations, not just the ones helping cute, fuzzy animals. As long as you are a registered nonprofit, you are eligible for Google Ad Grants.

Increase Conversion

So someone completed a Google search, your ad popped up, and now they’re perusing your website. This is a golden opportunity. As a nonprofit, every resource matters and counts towards fulfilling your vision. Your conversion goals are unique to your organization, but no matter what, you need people to take action. Using Google Ad Grants, you can funnel your audience to your website through text-based ads and inspire them!

This could involve gaining donations, increasing the number of people submitting volunteer forms, or growing newsletter sign-ups—the list goes on. Whatever a successful conversion looks like for your organization, ad grants can help you achieve it.

Track Marketing Efforts 

Data is a marketer’s love language, and you’re about to fall head over heels. Google Ad Grants combines with Google Analytics to provide loads of information on your ads’ performance. Tracking metrics like website traffic, bounce rate, conversions, and engaged sessions lets you see how well your ad works and make updates where needed. 

Is your bounce rate too high? Maybe your landing page isn’t relevant enough to your ad. Swap it and test another one. Are you looking for more email sign-ups, but your conversion rate needs to be higher? Review your website copy. Perhaps you can make that call-to-action punchier. 

Some of these updates take more time than others—that’s just marketing for you. But all this information helps you design high-performing ads that resonate with the hearts of your audience and drive them to take action. This way, you can use your ad grant dollars more wisely, championing your cause and illuminating a path toward a better future. 

Make an Impact 

No one understands the significance of your cause better than you and the communities you serve. Hope, resilience, and dedication drive you to make a change. Ad grants help your nonprofit by providing critical additional resources to your organization, helping you to reach people in need and those interested in sharing your vision. Access to grant funding provides stability to your organization and those you support. It allows for the development of new initiatives and program expansions. Because of this, the biggest benefit of the Google Ad Grants program is the ability to create a true impact.
