As a start-up nonprofit, Samasource needed low cost resources to get off the ground
quickly. This not only meant having a streamlined workflow for daily operations, but
also a way of finding donors to help them achieve their goals.
Samasource operates in five countries, so it's crucial that they have a way to
communicate quickly across the globe. To do this, they take full advantage of G
Suite. Their employees use Google Docs so that everyone can collaborate on a single
document, no matter where they are in the world. Additionally, they communicate via
Google Hangouts, sync calendars daily, and store files in Google Drive. Samasource
also uses Ad Grants to connect to potential students and donors, and Google Hangouts
on Air to host a quarterly “learnings call” and to build more public awareness of the
work they do.
“The suite of Google products has really helped us get off the ground and not have to
pay too much money to do that.”
Leila Janah, Founder & CEO, Samasource
As a growing and global nonprofit, it's crucial that they connect teams frugally and
effortlessly through the suite of Google products. Secure file collaboration allows
for streamlined workflows across multiple geographies, ensuring that an ecosystem
over 1,000 workers are able to access the appropriate files and documentation.
And as a startup with big ambitions, Samasource benefitted from advertising solutions
from Google for Nonprofits. Ad Grants helped Samasource reach thousands of potential
customers, educating technology companies about the power of impact sourcing.
Additionally, Ad Grants was the primary driver in the enrollment of over 25,000
students from 87 countries in Samaschool, an online digital skills training course.
