Yes, I used the magic marketing word - FREE! As I mentioned in my last post, Google Grants for Non-Profits is a program that allows non-profits to reach potential members, customers and donors, through a grant that allows $10,000 a month or more in free Google advertising. With the emergence of technology over the last few years, an online presence for non-profits both in social media and online ads is a must in order to share your mission and stories, and reach those who have the money to help your cause.
I received several emails this week wanting to know more about how the program could help with their fund-raising and philanthropy. This brief video clip outlines the different programs that are included in the Google Grants program, and how they can help target donors more effectively:
If you think that your non-profit can continue to increase donor participation without using social media and other online tools, you are missing a huge opportunity to raise more money for your cause. If you have questions on how to get started with Google Grants, contact me, Kelli Hatton, and I can help! If you are a non-profit currently using the program, I'd love to hear from you, too, about your experience.
