A new how-to guide for your nonprofit to be more productive

Your time is important. Every minute spent coordinating your next meeting or searching in your inbox is time away from making a difference for the cause your nonprofit serves. By using Google products and tools like G Suite for Nonprofits, your team can become more productive and collaborative. Learn more in this how-to guide.

Maximise your conversions on Google Ad Grants

When you promote your nonprofit’s website using Ad Grants, we encourage you to track meaningful conversion actions such as donations, volunteer recruitment or newsletter sign-ups. Implement Maximise conversions to automatically set bids and get the most conversions for your campaign. Read more about automatic bidding on Ad Grants and get started with Maximise conversions.

Tips & tricks

Manage your inbox more efficiently

Sometimes we spend more time searching for an email than actually reading it. In Gmail, you can create multiple inboxes to have more than one 'inbox' in your default Gmail view, and organise emails based on multiple criteria of your choice.

Organise your Google Drive to access files more quickly

Find items in your Drive by starring your most important docs within the main menu, and then bookmarking your starred page.
