To apply for the Google Ad Grant, you must complete the following steps.
- Before you apply, make sure your nonprofit is based in a country where the Google Ad Grant is available, and that you comply with the other eligibility requirements.
- Assuming you’re eligible, you’ll need to apply for a Google for Nonprofits account. To do this, you'll need:
- A Gmail account (new or current)
- EIN number
- Your official name (the one in your determination letter; if you’ve experienced a name change, please also provide this documentation)
- Your organization's address
- Type of impact (you'll fill this out in the application)
- 501c3 determination letter or similar document from the IRS/Department of Treasury (for TechSoup to verify your identity; submit when TechSoup emails you)
- Cannot be a state-level document nor a document downloaded from an online database such as the IRS or GuideStar.
