Get Found for Charities

Get Found for Charities will take you from application to launch with Google’s $10,000/mos Ad Grants program.

COVID-19 has impacted communities and organizations alike. We are facing challenges never seen before. At Get Found, we are committed to doing everything we can to support your success now, and in the future.

We talk to charitable organizations every day and a single concern has emerged: these charities are not sure they will have the resources to support those they serve once this crisis has passed. They are weighing how to cut costs and reduce overhead against their capacity to attract donors, clients and supporters. In many cases, this means that employees are having to take on more responsibilities, and may need specific training to take on these new roles.

We are here to help you get found so you can continue to serve those in our communities that need it the most.

50 Scholarships. 50 Charities.

For the past 4 years, we’ve been teaching Get Found courses including Get Found Digital Marketing, Kick A$$ SEO and the First Page Club. We’re making an investment in the future of our communities by offering 50 scholarships to 50 charities and non-profits.

Now more than ever, community organizations need the tools and resources to succeed online. So that potential donors can find the organizations they want to support. And so that, in a time of crisis, those who need a hand up can find support in their community.
