Hospital Foundation elegibility

Hello,

 

I just applied for a google adwords grant for my organization, and we were denied.  However, we aren't a hospital but rather a non-profit foundation that raises money for the hospital, research, technology, etc.

 

Is there someone who can help clarify?  I believe we qualify but now it sayd we already submitted and are denied.

@Jason P

Which country program are you applying for?

 

If the org is US-based then the issue is likely with their NTEE category code.

Is the org registered with Techsoup.ca?

Also, can you share what the denial email gave as the cause of the denial?

We are registered with techsoup.ca.

The denial said that our mission excludes us. Our mission can be found on
our website here:

The Ad Grants team has asked for the charity ID you used to apply so that they can investigate the issue further. 

 

Please fill out this form to send me the info so that it is not posted publicly.

I filled out the form and hit submit - will that get to you? or do you need me to get it to you another way as well?
