Google Grants Management

Google Grants is a unique in-kind donation program awarding free AdWords advertising to selected charitable organizations. According to Google: “we support organizations sharing our philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy and the arts. “

Once accepted, a charity / NGO will receive a grant of $10,000 per month, to spend on Google AdWords clicks. The Google Grants program empowers non-profit organizations to achieve their goals by helping them promote their websites via advertising on Google. Google AdWords ads appear when users search on Google. When you click one of the ads, you are brought to the website being advertised.

There are various terms and conditions applied to this program, for example there is a limit of $2 on each click, and the balance left over each month does not carry forward to the next month.

We, at Savvy Search Marketing, are currently managing the Google AdWords campaigns of several NGOs/charities that have received these grants (they are listed lower down this on this page). We have also helped charitable organizations in applying for the grant. This helps them to significantly increase their online exposure. Our management is done at a significant discount, as part of our community and charitable involvement.

To find out more about Google Grants, and to apply, visit http://www.google.ca/intl/en/grants. If you are a charity / NGO that has received the Google Grant (or is thinking of applying), and may need help in managing your AdWords campaign, please call 1-855-712-9772 or email us using the contact form on the right.

Below are some of the Google Grants accounts that we manage

For most, the reason for giving begins at home. We want outstanding care, close to home, for those who matter most to us: our spouse, children, grandchildren, elderly parents, friends.

This is an exciting time to give. Donors are taking a leading role and are making a personal impact. Your investment in the Foundation will enhance the care available to your loved ones and to the community.

It’s your hospital. Commit to it. Invest in it. Be a part of it. For all your very important reasons.
