Google for Nonprofits is a membership program for nonprofits based in the U.S. and U.K. (with country-specific programs). Though it has eligibility requirements, once accepted, you have access to free Google products.

Organizations like Kiva, BeatBullying, UNICEF, and charity: water are part of the Google for Nonprofits community. Each of these groups has used Google’s tools to heighten their awareness, particularly through Google Ads, YouTube, and Google Workspace, among other features.

Below, we’ll share the details of this free program so you can capitalize on these invaluable resources — five of which are shared below — that can be game-changers for your organization’s online awareness and fundraising campaigns.

1. Google Workspace for Nonprofits

Google Workspace for Nonprofits includes 30 GB of cloud storage, professional email addresses, and access to Google’s collection of apps: Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Drive, Calendar, Slides, Forms, Meet, Sites, and more.

Meanwhile, you can communicate online with people in various countries with Gmail and stay up-to-date on events with Google Calendar.
