Hello, we are an NGO and have received a google email with the following header:

¨ We want to congratulate you and welcome you to the Google Program for Non-Profit Organizations. The request for ¨ has been accepted

We have already created the adword account and notices, but the account is not active, the following message appears in red:

The account is not active - To activate the account and start running ads, you must enter your billing information.

We know that we should not load billing form because it is adword requirement, we wait a week but the situation is not modified and we do not know what to do, they can help us

From already thank you very much

Once your AdWords account is created, you still need to enroll in Ad Grants and submit your AdWords account for review.

  • Sign in to your Google for Nonprofits account.
    Make sure to sign in using your Google for Nonprofits administrator account which is the account that you used when you first applied for Google for Nonprofits. It may be different than the account you used to create your Google Ad Grants account which you’re enrolling.
  • Click the ‘Sign up now’ button.
  • Click the ‘Enroll’ button beneath Google Ad Grants.
  • Confirm that your AdWords account is configured correctlyIf you followed the Ad Grants Account Creation Guide it should be but here is your chance to double check before submitting.
  • Enter the customer ID of the AdWords account you created in the form field and complete the form.
  • Click ‘Enroll’.
