Google Adwords Grants for Charities

Are you a registered UK Charity?

If so, did you know that you are eligible for a grant from Google of $10,000 (approx. £7000) per month? That’s $120,000 – or £85,000 – of free paid advertising from Google per year. The initiative is designed to help you recruit more volunteers and attract more donations.

What is Google AdWords (Paid Advertising)?

PPC stands for pay-per-click, which is when advertisers pay an amount of money each time one of their ads is clicked on, either in the search results or on Google Partner sites. Basically, it’s a way of buying visits to your website, as opposed to optimising your site for organic (unpaid) search queries. PPC can be a quick win, a way to gain more traffic with fast results.

It allows advertisers to bid for ad placement in a search engine’s sponsored links when someone searches for a keyword that is related to their business services.

A major benefit is the chance for companies to maximise brand visibility and get quality donations from people already looking for a charity.

Are You Eligible For The Grant?

The criteria are as follows:

  • Charities must be based in the UK and registered with the Charity Commission, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator or Inland Revenue.
  • The following organisations are not eligible: governmental entities and organisations, hospitals and medical groups, schools, childcare centres, academic institutions and universities, political parties, political organisations, and lobbying groups.

There are limitations to these campaigns which include:

  • A daily budget set to $329 USD or £236.36, which is equivalent to about £10,000 (approx. £7000) per month
  • A maximum cost-per-click (CPC) limit of $2.00 USD or £1.44
  • Only run keyword-targeted campaigns
  • Only appear on Google search result pages
  • Only run text ads
  • Your site can’t contain sales or the ads can’t promote people buying products
