Helping nonprofits fundraise this season of giving

In 2020, people in the U.S. donated an estimated $2.5 billion on Giving Tuesday alone.

In 2020, people in the U.S. donated an estimated $2.5 billion on Giving Tuesday alone. To help connect nonprofits with people who are searching for ways to give their time and resources, Google.org will donate $25 million in ads to nonprofits around the world.

These grants are incremental to the baseline $10,000 per month Ad Grant offering and will go to nonprofits focused on humanitarian response, food insecurity and economic recovery. For example, organizations like Direct Relief may use the incremental Ad Grants to attract more donors who are searching on Google for ways to help vulnerable populations, while SCORE may use the grants to connect people looking for ways to volunteer on Google with an opportunity to sign up to be a small business mentor.

Google.org awards over $1 billion in Ad Grants annually to qualifying nonprofits. Last Giving Season, many organizations that received incremental Ad Grants, like Houston Food Bank, more than doubled the donations they raised as compared to similar organizations receiving the baseline Ad Grant. After receiving incremental Ad Grants in 2020, Houston Food Bank saw a fourfold increase in total donations from their campaigns — raising $130,000 in donations in a single month.

“We’ve had to work with quickness and efficiency to reach out to those who need us most,” said Jessica Dominguez, Annual Giving Manager at Houston Food Bank.“The easiest way for people to donate and find their closest food location is to turn to the web. The Ad Grant gave us the opportunity to reach these people and provide them with the right information.”

In addition to these incremental grants, all eligible organizations may sign up to receive $10,000 per month in Ad Grants and apply for pro bono account support through Google’s Nonprofit Marketing Immersion.

Happy giving!

A milestone for King’s Cross: a local innovation hub

Over the last few years, King’s Cross has truly transformed, becoming a thriving hub of innovation and creativity. The transformation is a sign of the UK’s strengths, with its incredible local talent and strong history of leading technological and scientific progress. These strengths inspired us to invest here in King’s Cross, in one of our most ambitious developments to date.

Today, together with local MP, Keir Starmer, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, leader of Camden Council Georgia Gould, and our building partners, we celebrated a major milestone in the construction of our new King’s Cross office – and in our long-standing commitment to the UK – as we placed the final beam on our new development.

Keir Starmer, Leader of the Labour Party and MP for Holborn and St Pancras said:

“It’s fantastic to attend not only as the leader of the Labour Party and local MP but as a proud local resident of more than 25 years. Congratulations to Google on your magnificent new building, and for all it represents – a seizing of opportunity, harnessing of talent, the creation of good, sustainable jobs and an immense contribution to our community. You’re showing what can be achieved when forward looking local government partners with the ingenuity of the private sector.”

We have long believed that creativity is spurred by environments that promote connection and wellbeing. This is more important than ever as we adapt to a future of flexible, hybrid working. Our new King’s Cross building will be equipped with new workplace technologies to help global and remote teams collaborate more effectively, build relationships, learn from colleagues and dream up new ways to solve complex challenges.

It will also be a place for community and connection thanks to the ground floor retail and community spaces, which are being curated with — and for — the local community. In the coming weeks, in partnership with more than 30 youth organisations in Camden, we’re excited to open our doors to 500 local young people for a week of taster sessions to inspire school students and job seekers with careers in technology, as well as more than 100 local work experience students.

Innovation extends to the design of the building itself, which is playing an important role in helping us to achieve our goal of going carbon free by 2030. We’re pioneering new technologies that will make our King’s Cross office our most ambitious smart building to date, including a system of 13,500 interconnected devices that will work together to improve energy efficiency in real time.

While the doors of our new King’s Cross development won’t open until 2024, incredible work is already underway nearby. The neighbourhood is home to thousands of our engineers working on products like Android, Wear OS, Search and Google Business Profiles, which are used the world over. In fact, many of the team behind some of our newest products – to be released later this year – are based right here in King’s Cross. We look forward to growing these teams and being a part of the local community’s future growth and development.

Protecting people’s privacy on health topics

Privacy matters to people — especially around topics such as their health. Given that these issues apply to healthcare providers, telecommunications companies, banks, tech platforms, and many more, we know privacy protections cannot be solely up to individual companies or states acting individually. That’s why we’ve long advocated for a comprehensive and nationwide U.S. privacy…

Privacy matters to people — especially around topics such as their health. Given that these issues apply to healthcare providers, telecommunications companies, banks, tech platforms, and many more, we know privacy protections cannot be solely up to individual companies or states acting individually. That’s why we’ve long advocated for a comprehensive and nationwide U.S. privacy law that guarantees protections for everyone, and we’re pleased to see recent progress in Congress.
