Need help, totally confused,

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our nonprofit group has had a google grants adwords account for many years. In this last month, we got "the note" that unless we upgrade to "google for nonprofits" and G Suite, and whatever else, we'll automatically lose it.

 

Problem is, the process has turned into a hall of mirrors, in which we always reach some dead end. In theory, we should be able to get voice help from a Google specialist, but we haven't found how. 

 

We've been told to create new admin accounts with no clear way to do it, to modify our website with HTML without knowing how to start 'the wizard" to GET the HTML, and various other seemingly circular pursuits. Any help or advice appreciated.

I am not sure about needing to modify HTML - that is the first that I have seen that one. All that is needed is for you to sign up with Google For Nonprofits (G4NP) and then sync your current Ad Grants account with your new G4NP account.

How to enroll in the Google for Nonprofits program

1.

Check the eligibility criteria for your country.

2.

Follow the steps to apply for the program membership.

 

How to link your Ad Grants account with a Google for Nonprofits account

1.

Sign in to your Google for Nonprofits account.

2.

Click Sign up now.

3.

Under "Google Ad Grants," click Enroll.

4.

Enter your -digit AdWords customer ID (CID), which is the same as your current Ad Grants account.

5.

Enter the referral code adgrants2017 and complete the rest of the form.

6.

Click Enroll.

 

Follow those steps and you should be good to go.

 

NOTE: For others reading this - this ONLY applies to grantees that were enrolled in Ad Grants prior to the launch of Google For Nonprofits. If you originally enrolled through G4NP and did not receive an email describing the steps above then no additional action is required on your part.

Aha.

 

The problem was that once creating a "GFN" account, it currently takes you to a page where you need to sign up for a G street account. In order to get PAST that page, you need to intuit that you have to click the name of your organization above in a navigation, which THEN takes you to the page you can enroll. Once that happens, it's simple to follow the instructions, which you folks have kindly provided and which I already had from the "we're about to cancel you" email. So in theory that's done, thanks.
