Did you know that you can add or edit your organization's information in Google Maps at any time for free?

Google Maps provides powerful mapping technology and local business information, including business locations, contact information, and driving directions to users that are searching for business locations in their local area. This is ideal for non-profits that offer services on location, such as medical treatment or after-school programs.

If you're interested in adding your non-profits to Google Maps, here's what to do:

  1. Make sure your non-profit is currently listed on Google Maps. (Do a search for your organization.)

  2. If you're not listed, you can add your office location at our Local Business Center. (Learn more about adding your non-profit.)

  3. Once your new listing is verified, your listing should appear on Google Maps.

  4. If you have more than ten office locations, please submit your information as a bulk upload through the Local Business Center. For more on creating bulk uploads, choose 'Upload a Data File' in your Local Business Center account, and then follow our bulk upload instructions.

This is just something to think about as you expand your organization to serve new areas or offer new services.
