non profit with 501c3 was rejected and I'm not sure why? I am able to find them on the IRS website - this is response from Google -

 

Your organization's primary mission, as recorded by the Internal Revenue Service, did not meet our eligibility guidelines. To learn more, please refer to our eligibility guidelines at https://support.google.com/nonprofits/answer/3215869?hl=en.

@Danny G

Their Guidestar profile has them listed under the NTEE category code of Elementary, Secondary Ed (B20) - which is a category type that is ineligible for the Google For Nonprofits (G4NP) program. If that category code does not properly reflect the mission of the organization I would recommend that they update the category code through Guidestar and then reapply.

Hello,

 

Eligibility criteria is already been defined by Google and it varies from country to country.

 

Probably @RobertCoats might have some additional thoughts around it.

They are a US Based non profit and seem to meet the requirements in the documentation.

Hi @Danny G

The following are NOT eligible:

  • Governmental entity or organization
  • Hospital or health care organization
  • School, childcare center, academic institution, or university (philanthropic arms of educational organizations are eligible). 

Without more information about your client that is really about as much information I can provide you as to why they were not approved.

Amazing @RobertCoats thanks so much for the information. I'll check with the client and see if this classification is what they intended. Thank you so much for your help

@RobertCoats, I have had the info changed in Guidestar, http://www.guidestar.org/profile/68-0411120 and went back to their google account and clicked "reapply" - It took a couple of seconds and denied it again for the same reason. i'm not 100% sure it did a full review as the first time took a day to respond. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
