Ad Grants - linking to an external page

[ Edited ]

We have a donation page, but are currently taking donations via Just Giving.
Would Google penalise us, if we send the prospect to a specific landing page on our site, and then they can make a donation via an external link at Just Giving?

I am wondering if that viloates Google Ad grants policies?

Thanks.

Hi CPAG,
Your website may certainly link over to your 3rd-party donation page but you may not link your ads to any 3rd party pages, donation or otherwise.

Ads may ONLY link to you approved website domain.

So, as you posed your question: sending traffic to your landing page on your website and then having the user donated via a external link would be allowed. (and is very common)
