Hi, Ariane!


We have received an automated message that our Google Ad application [1-6416000004073] was rejected because you couldn't verify the charity status of our nonprofit organisation.


However, a search of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Register show that we are a registered charity:


Please advise why we were assessed as being ineligible for the grant. Thank you.
