As a nonprofit, chances are you don’t have a worldwide network of donors, sponsorships, or partnerships like the Salvation Army or Goodwill. That doesn’t mean organizations like yours are completely without resources. In addition to the nonprofit services Advisicon offers, there are plenty of websites offering help as well.
If you search for “free nonprofit resources” on Google, you’ll get around 190 million results. That’s a lot to sift through! So we decided to do a little sifting for you and came up with three great nonprofit resources online that can help your organization in a myriad of ways.
Speaking of Google, the internet giant is offering $10,000 of advertising every month from Google Ads. Available for qualifying nonprofits, this in-kind advertising will put you in front of more volunteers, potential donors, and possible partners. What nonprofit couldn’t use a little more help?
The ads will appear on search results pages below paid ads and will be text only. You’ll also have the freedom to change your message, choose your audience, and optimize campaigns. Or if you prefer, pick your targets, write three lines of text, set your daily budget and let Google do the rest.
To help your community, you’ll need some help of your own. Volunteers, donors, and partnerships are a significant part of keeping a nonprofit organization solvent and moving forward. Google Ads will expand your base in all three areas. Click here to learn more about Google Ad Grants.

Offering donated or discounted products for eligible nonprofits, Microsoft believes in helping these organizations reach their full potential. This includes cloud services like Office 365 and Azure as well as offering training events at local Microsoft offices around the nation.

To see if your nonprofit is eligible, click here to register with Microsoft as a nonprofit.
Advisicon understands the importance of nonprofit organizations addressing under-supported areas of different communities. Whether addressing homelessness, food insecurity, or even the arts, nonprofits help close the gap when public help isn’t available. As a Microsoft PPM Gold partner, we can help your organization utilize technology to advance your message.
In addition to the above resources, consider reaching out to Advisicon to learn more about our nonprofit services as well. We offer free training on Microsoft products like Office 365, Project, Visio, and more for nonprofit organizations.
