At DriveTraffic, we know it is a challenge for non-profits to stretch their advertising dollars and grow cause-awareness. A $10,000 monthly advertising grant for registered charities in Canada from Google Grants can make all the difference in the world.
In order for your non-profit to qualify for free AdWords advertising under Google Grants, it must be:
- Registered with the CRA as a federal charity, a federal non-profit, or a provincial non-profit.
- Registered with TechSoup Canada (Google’s global partner) before you can apply to Google for non-profits. It may take 7–10 business days for TechSoup to validate your organization and issue you a validation token, which you’ll need when registering your firm with Google for Non-profits.
- An organization that is not a government entity, hospital, healthcare organization, or educational institution.
It’s one thing to qualify for the grant – and an entirely different thing to meet the strict criteria to keep it!
If you are wanting to manage your non-profit’s account on your own, you are going to need to follow some of Google’s rules for using their grant money:
- You must use a bid optimization strategy called “Maximize Conversions”.
- You must maintain a minimum 5% CTR (click-through rate) – a tall order in the competitive ad space!
- Your Google Ads account must make use of geo-targeting tools.
- Each Google Ads campaign must contain at least two active ad groups and each ad group must contain a minimum of two active text ads.
- You must use a minimum of two site link extensions.
- You must conform to keyword restrictions. No bidding on other brands’ taglines!
- You must maintain a Quality Score of 2 or higher.
