How to Make the Google Ad Grants Program Work for Your Nonprofit

Last December, Google communicated forthcoming changes for its Google Ad Grants program. The changes were scheduled to be implemented on January 1. However, it appears that Google is giving account owners some time to make necessary adjustments.

The program provides up to $10,000 USD in AdWords advertising to eligible nonprofits, with some restrictions.

Some of the program changes are good (such as the removal of the $2 bid limit).

But other changes may create new challenges. In particular, the new 5% CTR rule might create some difficulties, especially if your nonprofit operates in a highly competitive market.

In my latest column in Search Engine Land, I take a closer look at these Google Ad Grants program changes and describe how nonprofits can work with—and around—the new rules.

“I’ve worked with a variety of PPC/search companies over the years, and Pauline and her team, continue to be outstanding. We are in a very difficult position bidding against some of the larger cancer organizations out there, and Pauline and co continually find great ways to compete without breaking the bank.

We’ve been working with them for about 2 1/2 years, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

We meet with their team on a weekly basis and review status and performance. They are very responsive to our needs and always think outside of the box, as you know it’s an ever-changing field.”
