Today, we are excited to work with TechSoup Global and TechSoup Canada to bring Google for Nonprofits to Canada. Canadian Registered Charities, Canadian Federal Nonprofits, and Canadian Provincial Nonprofits can apply to join the program, which offers access to our suite of free products and tools.
Once your organisation is approved, you can get access to free Google Apps to cut IT costs and operate more efficiently, up to $10,000 a month in advertising on Google AdWords to reach more donors, and premium features for YouTube and our mapping technologies to raise awareness of your cause. We’ve also developed other online resources such as educational videos, case studies and other ways to connect with other nonprofits.
We see the impact every day of nonprofits embracing the web - it’s literally transforming the way they work. Samasource has connected women, youth and refugees to meaningful work opportunities over the internet. Kiva funds millions of dollars in loans through online donations to entrepreneurs in need. We’re also seeing this in Canada. And Ladies Learning Code is one of many organizations in Canada using web-based tools to run a network of 6,000 volunteers to host code-learning workshops all over the country.
We’re inspired and humbled by the amazing ways nonprofits are making the world a better place, and look forward to supporting the work of more nonprofits in Canada.
