Create a Google+ Page for your nonprofit

Your Google+ Page is the home of your organization on Google+; make it yours with photos, success stories, information about volunteering and donating, project locations and more. You can follow the steps below to get your organization up and running on Google+.

  1. Create your profile
    • You’ll need to have a Google Account and a personal Google+ profile to create a Google+ Page.  Once logged into your Google+ profile, on the right hand side of your stream, you will see “Create a Page” to begin creating your page.
    • When you create your page, you’ll be asked to select a category, make sure you select “Company, Institution or Organization” to indicate that you’re a nonprofit.
    • To get started, walk through the dialog boxes to set up the basics of your profile including a profile picture and a tagline for your organization.

  2. Start posting
    • Want to start the conversation? Make your page engaging so that users want to come back and check what new content you’ve added. You can choose which circles you share info with, so people are only seeing the updates that are the most relevant and interesting to them. Learn more about sharing on Google+.
  3. Grow your Cicles
    • Whenever someone adds you to their Circles, you can add them right back, so spreading the word and encouraging people to add you is a key component of talking to the people who want to hear from you. To view people and pages who aren’t already in your circles but have added you, review your followers on your Google+ page.
