Google for Nonprofits Newsletter | January 2019

Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback on Issue 1 of the Google for Nonprofits newsletter. We heard you, and we’re working hard to include new nonprofit case studies and product tips and tricks in our future newsletters!

What's New?

Go in-depth with us in two upcoming livestreams

Google for Nonprofits will be hosting two YouTube livestreams in the next few months. We hope you join us and ask questions in the livestream chat!

Ad Grants Certified Professionals

The Google Ad Grants Certified Professionals Community has a mission to enhance the Ad Grants experience for Grantees. Certified Professionals are agencies and consultants who offer Ad Grants expertise and nonprofit sector specialization to help Grantees use their Ad Grant effectively.

Encourage donations to your nonprofit through the Google Assistant

With the Google Assistant, people can now donate to all 501(c)(3) public charities in the United States using just their voice. Donations can be made simply by saying:

  • “Hey Google, donate to charity”

  • “Hey Google, donate to [charity name]”  

Donations will be routed through our partner, Network For Good. We hope the simplicity and convenience of donating with the Google Assistant will encourage more people to give back to the causes they love.

Tips & Tricks

Get better data about your nonprofit’s website

Google Analytics is a powerful tool that makes it easy to understand how users are engaging with your nonprofit's website, so you know which content and experiences are working and which are not. Visit the Analytics Help Center to learn how to get set up, and learn how Analytics can help you with Ad Grants conversion tracking.

Nonprofit Stories

Girl Scouts of Japan scales their program offerings nation-wide using Google products.

It’s quite an undertaking to support 30,000 young women across Japan with empowering programs, but Girl Scouts of Japan accomplishes the feat securely and efficiently using G Suite apps like Gmail, Drive, and Forms. “Google for Nonprofit tools not only help keep the Girl Scouts of Japan programs organized and efficient, but also help visualize their important work to encourage and empower girls and young women,” notes Rumiko Meguro from the PR and Fundraising team.
