Supporting NFP’s via Google Grants

Supporting NFPs via Google Grants Conversion Digital

The vital NFP sector in Australia continues to grow, it’s becoming more difficult for each organisation to win the attention & support of its constituents to help drive its mission.

Many NFP’s have not yet tapped into the generosity of Google’s Grant program. Some have not even heard of it! Conversion Digital is proud to work with many NFP’s of all shapes and sizes to assist with managing Google Grants.

Want to Know If Your NFP Qualifies for the $10K per Month Grant? Keep Reading!

The Google Ad Grant gives you up to $10,000 USD each month in ad credit. Which they split into $329 USD max spend per day. If you have a high traffic day it will only spend that much in grants for you, potentially leaving extra traffic untouched! You will need a paid account separate from the Google Grant account if you wish to spend more per day from your own budget. The Google Grant process can be time-consuming and requires a level of experience, so let Conversion Digital do it for you. We’ve successfully applied for dozens of Google Grants and also managed the accounts, keeping a high click through rate and squeezing maximum value out of the Grant for our clients.

What requirements you need to achieve to be able to apply for a Google Grant in Australia:

  1. Registered as a charitable organisation in an approved country. Every organisation in Australia must be registered as a nonprofit with Connecting Up. They are the Australian branch of TechSoup.  Conversion Digital can help you get registered with both Connecting Up and Google Grants!
