Google Ads Grants

PAID SEARCH & DISPLAY

Up To £7,000 Ad Credits Every Month For Your Non-Profit

If you run a charity or a non-profit in the UK, you can apply for a Google Ads Grant. This will give your organisation up to £7,000 every month in Google Ads credits to spend on search advertising.

 

Whilst the thought of “Free money” sounds like a dream come true, many charities will find it a challenge to meet the numerous requirements to quality/maintain the ads grant. That’s why we have created this specific service for Google Ads Grants.

 

This ad credit can have a hugely positive impact for charities and non-profits. You could use your free ad credits to:

  • Attract new donations
  • Help spread awareness when people search for things such as “Rescue animals” “Youth work schemes” “Homeless shelters” etc
  • Drive awareness and sell tickets to your charity events
  • Recruit volunteers for your charity
  • Reach people who may need your help
  • Increase your newsletter subscriptions

Google Ads Grants Requirements

Getting up to £7,000 per month in Google Ads credits is a big deal for a lot of charities. However, to qualify for a Google for Non-profits account, and then continue to receive the Google Ads Grant, you will need to meet a number of minimum requirements.

 

To request a Google for Non-profits account, Google states that you must be a non-profit charitable organization in good standing, and meet the full eligibility requirements in your country.

 

In the UK, those requirements are:

 

  • Organizations must be currently registered with tt-exchange, TechSoup Global’s regional arm.
  • Organizations must be registered with or recognized by relevant authorities as: (1) registered charities; or (2) HMRC exempt charities or churches.
  • Agree to the Google for Nonprofits Terms.

You are not eligible for Google for Nonprofits if your organisation is:

 

  • A governmental entity or organization
  • A hospital or health care organization (charitable arms or foundations associated with healthcare organizations are eligible).
  • A school, academic institution, or university (philanthropic arms of educational organizations are eligible).

Once accepted for a Google Ads Grant, you will need to do the following to continue to be eligible to receive the grant for your charity or non-profit each month.

 

  • Maintain at least a 5% click-through rate (CTR) this means that for every 100 times your ad is shown in the search results, it is clicked 5 times, as this demonstrates your ad is relevant to the searcher.
  • Each ad group must have at least two different text ads.
  • Have at least two different sitelinks.
  • You must have conversion tracking installed on your website.
  • Campaigns must have at least two active ad groups per campaign.
  • Keyword quality score must be above 2.
  • All grantees must complete an annual program survey.

This list is not exhaustive but covers the main aspects of a Google non-profit account.
