  • I am a nonprofit school, healthcare organization or government entity, am I eligible for Google for Nonprofits?

    No. At this time, your organization is not eligible for Google for Nonprofits. If you are a school, child care center, academic institution, or university, check out Google for Education.
  • I am a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization with charity status through a group exemption provided by a parent organization, am I eligible to enroll in Google for Nonprofits?

    If your organization has charity status through a group exemption provided by a parent organization, you may still be eligible for the Google for Nonprofits program. You must be a separate branch covered through a group exemption and Google must be able to validate from public documents that your organization is covered by a qualified parent organization through a group exemption.

    To apply, please go to the Google for Nonprofits application page and enter your parent organization’s EIN number. If there are other Google for Nonprofits members registered with the same EIN, you will be prompted to create a new application. Please do not request ownership of these applications. Instead, click 'Create New Application' and complete the application form. Be sure to enter your own organization's information and not the parent organization’s. See here for additional information about applying under a group exemption.
