You’ve seen Google Adwords in action, even if you don’t realize it.
Google Adwords is Google’s native advertising program. Using Adwords, you can place text advertisements for your organization or services above search results in Google. Advertising with Adwords allows your ads to appear alongside search results for popular search terms in front of tens of thousands of searchers.

Maximize Your Exposure
The Google Adwords Grant allows your ads to show up at the top of search results for your main keywords. With this program you can increase your online exposure and appear in front of your target audience any time they are searching for your services.
Advertise Services & Products
The Google Adwords Grant lets you advertise your nonprofit’s services and products to searchers online. Using the Adwords Grant, you can reach a much wider audience of motivated searchers with advertisements targeted to the keywords they are looking for.
Connect with Donors
The Google Grant allows you to reach out to potential donors and volunteers online. With this program you can target ads specifically to donors looking for nonprofits to assist or to volunteers looking for an organization to work alongside.
Google Adwords makes it easy to advertise events and special occasions without expending extra funds. The Adwords Grant even allows you to target your ads to people seeking events or activities in your location to help increase attendance and reach more people.
Increase Brand Awareness
Using the Google Grant your ads can appear in searches broadly related to your services. This can allow you to increase awareness of your organization and brand among the general public, or to build interest in one part of your organization’s offerings.
Receive Valuable Data
When you use Google Adwords, you receive valuable data about the people searching for your keywords and clicking on your advertisements. This data makes it easier to target future ads, and it also provides valuable insight into your online audience.
