Five Nonprofits Win Our 2016 Google Grants Sweepstakes
As part of #GivingTuesday in late November we offered to help five nonprofits through the process of applying for free advertising with the Google Grants program. We would like to thank everyone who shared and entered the sweepstakes. While Montana organizations dominated the entry list this year, groups from Oregon to Wisconsin and across the West entered.
Drawn at random from more than 25 entrants, we are pleased to announce 2016 winners:
Alzheimer’s Association Oregon (Portland, Oregon)
Loyola Sacred Heart Foundation / Missoula Catholic Schools (Missoula, Montana)
Montana Natural History Center (Missoula, Montana)
Travelers’ Rest State Park (Lolo, Montana)
Western Native Voice (Billings, Montana)
We’ll be working with these organizations in the coming weeks to help them access the grants and achieve their goals — which include telling their stories to more people, attracting new visitors and members, and strengthening donations and fundraising efforts.
We’ve found the Google Grants program to be a powerful tool for nonprofits, and plan to continue helping these organizations capitalize on their potential. There’s certainly a process to accessing the grants, but the results are worth it. These grants include up to $10,000 in free advertising every month.
If your nonprofit is interested in learning about what Google Grants can do to help you reach your goals, please give a call to Tony Ferrini, our digital director, at 406.541.2263; or you can email him.
