on January 16, 2018

We’ve scoured the web to find the best and most beneficial discounts for nonprofits. Because... well, who doesn’t love a good discount.

Here we go...

Discounted advertising

Google AdWords

If you don’t already know, Google offers qualifying nonprofits $10,000 a month (you read that right) in free ads using their Google Ad Grant program. By displaying ads to people who are searching for nonprofits like yours, this is free money that you can’t afford not to use. Additionally, Google also offers their G Suite to nonprofits for free.

PVBLIC Foundation

PVBLIC Foundation is an innovative non-profit media organization that harnesses the power of media to drive social change. Nonprofits that use the PVBLIC Foundation to buy media for advertising campaigns get access to deeper discounts than they could get on their own. The discount changes depending on the type of media and the amount of advertising the nonprofit is looking to use.
