Question from a nonprofit in the midst of applying for the first time

We have a crucial question in regards to our application and I am running in circles with trying to clarify this grant process. I called help desk and read through the google grant support and can’t seem to find an answer. Can you please help guide me to a correct person to contact or at least an email? I emailed adwords-support@google.com.

 

Our question is: if we were to be approved for this grand for adwords, do they split the $10,000 throughout our national organization or can we receive $10,000 per region?

 

Thank you for all your help!

 

Andy

Hi @Andy N

The Ad Grant would apply to a single charity/EIN (i.e the parent organization) and the website of that organization. However, there are a few scenarios that could also apply in this particular situation:

  1. If the regional orgs have their own individual EINs (and thus charity status) then they would be able to apply for their own account if they also met the eligibility requirements.
  2. If the regional orgs do NOT have their own EINs but are separate from the main/national org via their own individual websites then after the national website has been approved then you could request an exception to the one URL policy by submitting a request to add additional domains to the account, and then promote the regional websites via their own campaigns within the approved account.
