Can I post fundraising ad?
I am running a fundraiser to help a local boy that was a victim of a hit & run accident. Read this link, can I run an ad about this.

With all the sympathy I have for the case, solicitation of funds is not allowed. (Unless you set a tax exempt entity -I did not see that on your site.)

Hi Joe and welcome to the Community.
The answer to this isn't straightforward. Google does permit advertising of fund raising activities but only under certain conditions, principally that the donations be "tax-exempt". I've had a quick look at the giveforward site but couldn't find any information about the tax status of their donations so I'm not even going to try and give you a positive answer here; I'd suggest you read the relevant Policy entry:
and then it would probably be a good idea to contact AdWords directly.
I wish you and your project all the best, please do come back here with any other questions we can help with.
