Take a look at our latest How-To Guide

This month, discover how Google products and solutions can be used to coordinate your nonprofit’s board.

Create a Google Site for your team

With a central, internal-only site, everyone in your nonprofit can find your team’s information, projects and other resources. You can show upcoming events by embedding a Google Calendar, onboard new team members with a 'file cabinet' page of training materials stored in Drive, and much more. Get started following this resource.

Tips & tricks

Google Drive makes it easy to find your files

Try searching for a phrase that you know is inside a picture or PDF, and you’ll be able to find the matching file. Very helpful when you can’t remember your filename.

Did you know you can 'undo send' in Gmail?

In your Gmail settings, implement a 5–30 second cancellation period on your sent emails, and once you’ve sent one off, you’ll receive a prompt in case you need  'undo'.
