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:
“Ok Google, donate to charity”
“Ok 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 Centre to learn how to get set up, and learn how Analytics can help you with Ad Grants conversion tracking.

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

'Google for Nonprofit tools not only help keep the Girl Scouts of Japan programmes organised and efficient, but also help visualise their important work to encourage and empower girls and young women,' notes Rumiko Meguro from the PR and Fundraising team.
