Over the past few years, the Google Grants team has been working hard to help you, the grantee, make better use of your AdWords account to achieve your organization's goals. We've beefed up our educational resources, added new content to our Help Center, and much more to empower you. Towards the same end, we held our first grantee workshop last summer on our Mountain View, California campus, where 100+ grantees attended a two-day workshop focused on better use of their Google Grants account and awareness of other non-profit offerings from Google. Last year's event was such a success, that we will be holding a second two-day workshop in Mountain View this summer.
That's right - we are pleased to announce our second Google Grants Workshop, to be held in Mountain View in early September!
During the two-day workshop, grantees will attend AdWords sessions taught by in-house specialists, hear best practices from fellow grantees, and learn about Google for Non-Profits' products that can make an impact on their organization. As with last year's event, we will record workshop sessions and post the videos online from which all can benefit.
While we'd love to open this event to all our 6,000+ grantees, we do have a limited number of invitations and will not be able to accommodate everyone. Therefore, we'll be holding a lottery drawing to ensure that we issue invitations fairly. Also, since this workshop will feature similar content to last year's event, we ask that those who attended the previous workshop do not enter the lottery for the 2010 event.
If you're a current Google Grants recipient, are interested in attending the Google Grants Workshop this summer, and did not attend last year's workshop, please sign-up to enter our invite lottery by July 9th.
To take full advantage of this event, we ask for attendance from your organization's AdWords account manager and up to one additional representative per organization. Also, to help us better understand how we can help your non-profit, we'll ask you for some basic information and a brief statement about why your organization would benefit from attending this event. We'll be following up with all interested grantees after the July 9th deadline with the results of the lottery.
Have a great summer and we'll see you in September!
