Google and your organization may have more in common than you think.
Sure, Google is a multibillion-dollar for-profit corporation with over 50,000 employees and a verb in the English Dictionary derived from its namesake, but it also has an altruistic side just like your nonprofit.
Google wants to help your organization make the world a better place by providing its premium services for free, or at a deep discount, so take advantage! Apply to the Google for Nonprofits program. It couldn’t be any easier, or make any more sense.
