Google Grant denial
I work with The Salvation Army in the vehicle donation and sales department for SoCal. I recently applied for Google Grants and was denied.
The denial notice read:
Re: Google Grant denial
Welcome to the community.
The are two things, one is the being able to determine the relationship with the charity ID provided. You have to be able to show proof of that relationship.
The second is that you are not eligible to run ads based on the service you offer.
From the Google Ad Grants Eligibility page:
- Ads offering financial products (such as mortgages or credit cards) or those requesting car, boat or property donations and related keywords are not allowed.
All in all, even if you could show relationship with the charity ID provided, you would still not be able to run ads.
