Back to top


The world of marketing is constantly changing and even a full-sized marketing department with a large budget may struggle to keep up. Nonprofit organizations often have limited resources and employees may have to fill several roles. We have rounded up the top five marketing resources that nonprofits can use to help them save both time and money. 


Google for Nonprofits


Google for Nonprofits offers a plethora of options for nonprofit organizations. Here are a few highlights: 

  • Google Ad Grants provides access to in-kind advertising every month for text ads to help raise awareness, drive website traffic and reach a wider audience. 
  • YouTube Nonprofit Program gives teams the ability to link supporters to an external URL via “link anywhere” cards. Combined with YouTube Giving features and tailored lessons from Creator Academy, nonprofits can use YouTube to tap into a global audience, educate about their cause, and fundraise through video. 
  • Google for Nonprofits supplies credits to nonprofits for the Google Maps Platform. Here, organizations can create a donor map, publish simple maps on their website, take supporters on location, and connect them to more resources.
