We are delighted to announce that we are giving away six months of free PPC account management to a local charity through a giveaway.

Google Ad Grants is an advertising solution, which grants $10,000 Google Ads monthly advertising budget to non-profit organisations. The grant enables charities to reach a bigger audience, spread the word on their activities, raise more money, and recruit more volunteers.

Excited about Google giving back and wanting to raise awareness of this opportunity amongst non-profits, Pepper PPC has decided to give back to its local community in Yorkshire by offering one local charity free PPC account management services for six months.

If you’re a charity or non-profit organisation based in Yorkshire that is already a Google Ad Grantee or is looking for help applying for the grant and running Google Ads campaigns, you are encouraged to enter.

What is Google Ad Grants?

Google Ad Grants is an advertising solution, which grants $10,000 Google Ads monthly advertising budget to non-profit organisations. The grant enables to reach a bigger audience, spread the word, and recruit more volunteers.

PPC advertising is an excellent way for charities and non-profits to generate awareness and increase donations and numbers of volunteers through displaying your messaging to people searching for non-profits.

There are a few guidelines to follow and things to remember for best practice when using Google Ad Grants advertising:

  1. The ads will be entirely text ads without any visuals.
  2. Ads will appear below the ads of paying advertisers.
  3. All campaigns must be keyword targeted.
  4. Maximum cost per click is capped at $2.00.
  5. The granted advertising budget is $10,000 of Google Ads advertising every month.

How Google Ad Grants works

Google Ads appear in Google SERPS (search engine results pages) above the organic search results, making each advertising message clearly visible to search engine users.

Google Ads enables charities to optimise their ads through targeting specific audiences to reach the most relevant people and setting campaign goals.

Google already works with more than 20,000 non-profits in over 50 countries.

Why non-profits should apply for Google Ad Grants

Here are just a few ways in which your non-profit could benefit from a Google Ad Grant:

  • Increased visibility and awareness of the cause of the non-profit.
  • More donations.
  • More volunteers.
  • The budget is used to connect with users who are most likely to engage.
