Application process

Follow the steps below to get started with Google for Nonprofits. 

What you'll need:

Nonprofit organizations in countries where Google for Nonprofits is available must be approved before enrolling in products.

  • Your organization must be validated as a nonprofit organization by TechSoup.

When you apply for Google for Nonprofits in the United States we send your organization's details to TechSoup to be validated. Outside of the US you will need to register your organization with the local TechSoup partner in your country.

When you're ready to proceed, follow these steps to sign up for Google for Nonprofits: 

1. Read the eligibility guidelines.

Not all nonprofit organizations are eligible for the Google for Nonprofits program. Read the eligibility guidelines before applying to see if your nonprofit is likely to be approved.

2. Fill out the application form.

All organizations, including those in the United States, must be validated as a nonprofit organization. In order to sign up for the Google for Nonprofits program for organizations located outside of the US, you must provide your organization's TechSoup Validation Token, which identifies your organization as validated. It will look something like t123a4567@MyOrgName123. Learn more about TechSoup.

3. Wait for a decision.

Most applications will be reviewed within 2-14 business days. If your application requires a closer look, TechSoup may request additional information. While you're waiting, you can sign in to your Google for Nonprofits account at any time to check the status of your application.

4. Enroll in Google products, at no charge!

Once your organization has been approved for Google for Nonprofits, you can enroll in our products. Learn how to enroll in specific products.
