Hi Cameron,

Welcome to the community.  


Where you denied for the Google For Nonprofits program or were you denied for the Ad Grants product after enrolling in Google For Nonprofits?


The first step of the process is to apply for Goggle For Nonprofits.


Organizations that rely on the group 501(c)(3) exemption of a central (“umbrella”) organization can apply to Google for Nonprofits as a "related organization."


However, Fiscally sponsored organizations that do not have their own 501(c)(3) status and are not covered by group exemption are not eligible for the Google for Nonprofits program. From your post it sounds like you may be fiscally sponsored and that could be the reason for rejection.
