Discounts and Freebies from Google for Non Profits

Did you know Google offers discounts and freebies for non-profits?

Google offers a special suite of “premium products that we’ve discounted or made free for organizations like yours.”

Leadership Network reports:

In 2011, Google modified its eligibility guidelines to allow churches to take advantage of a $10,000 per month value of free and discounted packages of advertising and premium tools such as donation links, YouTube action links, Google Earth and applications that businesses normally have to pay for. Go to Google for nonprofits to see the latest information and eligibility guidelines.

Read their strategies in detail at Leadership Network.

Also check out the Google Non Profits site itself where you can review the products involved:

  • Apps: Free version of Google Apps for Nonprofits with fewer than 3,000 users, or a 40% discount ($30/user/year) on Google Apps for Business for organizations which have over 3,000 users.
  • Google Grants: leveraging online advertising via adWords
  • YouTube for Non Profits: Customized channels, “Donate now” buttons in the video, call to action overlays on videos–all free for joining the Google for Nonprofits program.
  • Google Earth Outreach: create custom maps, create narrative google Earth movie, collect data in the field and map data, and more
