The YouTube channel you submitted does not match your organization
Make sure that you’re submitting your organization’s YouTube channel in your Google for Nonprofits account. The YouTube channel should be easily verified as belonging to your organization. If we were unable to determine the relationship between your organization and the YouTube channel submitted we will have sent you an email with next steps.
You don't have a YouTube channel
Your organization needs to have an existing YouTube channel in order to activate the YouTube Nonprofit program. If your organization doesn't have a YouTube channel, you can create one. Once you have a YouTube channel, find your channel ID and use it to activate the YouTube Nonprofit Program.
