Are hospice charities allowed to apply for Google Grants?
Re: Are hospice charities allowed to apply for Google Grants?
The eligibility for Google Ad Grants is largely based on the eligibility of Google For Nonprofits which can be found here: https://support.google.com/nonprofits/answer/3215869?hl=en&ref_topic=3247288
Please note that the following organizations are not eligible for Google for Nonprofits:
- Governmental entities and organizations.
- Hospitals and health care organizations.
- Schools, childcare centers, academic institutions, and universities (philanthropic arms of educational organizations are eligible).
And as you can see from above, hospitals and health care organizations are not eligible - but does that mean hospices as well? Well, in some cases yes, and in some cases no. You see it is really based on how the charity is classified with the IRS (or country equivalent). In the US, a hospice would typically fall under the NTEE Category code of P74 (Hospice) which is not on the list that I have of being ineligible.
My recommendation - go ahead and apply. The application is quick and easy and you get a response back in seconds.
