Google For Nonprofits Now Available In The UK
Charities in England and Wales have cause to celebrate today with the launch of Google For Nonprofits in the The UK.
While Google Grants has been available in many countries around the world for several years now, Google’s full-suite of tools for nonprofits has only been available to US-based organizations. That all changed today with Google’s announcement that they are launching the Google For Nonprofits program in the UK starting in England and Wales.
The Google For Nonprofits has been a stellar success for nonprofits in the US and with today’s UK launch it is an indication that Google wants to make it’s full suite of nonproft offerings available to more countries. The program provides charity organizations of the UK free access to a wide variety of products including:
- Google Apps to help cut IT costs
- Google Grants, the nonprofit version of AdWords that provides up to $10,000 a month in advertising
- Premium features such as ‘donate now’ buttons for YouTube accounts
- And special mapping technologies for Google Earth and Google Maps.
Dan Cobley, managing director of Google UK, said, “Through Google for Nonprofits, we want to support the incredible work of charitable organisations in the UK by eliminating some of the technical challenges and costs that they face. We hope our technology will help them to reach more donors, improve operations and raise awareness so they can focus on changing the world for the better.”
Kinsey Street has worked with nonprofit organizations around the world and is excited to see Google continuing to expand their programs. If you are a nonprofit based in the UK we strongly encourage you to apply to join the program today. If you need assistance, please feel free to reach out to us.
