We’ve just spotted that Google is targetting non-profit organisations for some of its services at no or reduced cost – and we’d like to share the love!
At time of writing, the full range of services are only available to registered not-for-profit organisations headquartered in the USA, but the normal expectation is that over time this geographic restriction will be relaxed. Australian Non-profits, for example, can already access Google Apps for Business with a 40% discount, and Google AdWords grants. Useful links below.
Here’s the home page of Google for nonprofits: http://www.google.com/nonprofits/index.html
Google grants (for “in kind advertising”) are available in the following countries (incl. Australia):http://www.google.com.au/grants/domains.html
Youtube Non-profit Programme: http://www.youtube.com/nonprofits. Does your organisation have a compelling story to tell?
Google Apps for Nonprofit: http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/nonprofit/index.html. Hosted email, documents, spreadsheets, etc.
