Application Status

Good Morning,

 

Our organization's application for Google AdWords was recently rejected. Is there someone I can speak with regarding the status of our application?

 

The organization for which I am making this inquiry is the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics Foundation (EIN: 57-0881347). We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and we are a philanthropic arm of an educational organization. We exist solely to support the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics. Please refer to the mission statements below. One describes the mission of the school, the other describes the mission of the Foundation, which is a completely separate philanthropic entity.

 

The mission of the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) is to develop the scientifically astute and ethically aware leaders needed for the state’s expanding knowledge-based economy. The South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics Foundation supports the mission of the SC Governor's School for Science and Mathematics by giving voice to its needs, providing supplemental funds to augment its programs, and informing the public as to its accomplishments and contributions to the quality of life and economic prosperity of South Carolina.

 

Because the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and a philanthropic arm of an educational organization (therefore we meet the eligibility requirements listed on your website), we would greatly appreciate it if Google for Nonprofits would reconsider or application.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

All Best,

Jennifer

Jennifer, did you ever find an answer to your January 16th, 2013 letter above? Since "philanthropic arms of educational organizations" is not defined, it seems to leave parent fundraising groups in a pickle. Budget cuts at many school districts truly call for parental non-profit activity, especially peer-to-peer to help enhance education.
