Google Makes Apps For Nonprofits Free To All

By: Chris Crum - February 26, 2013

Google announced that Google Apps for Nonprofits is now free for all nonprofits. Before, the free version was only available for nonprofits with less than 3,000 users.

“Now, whether your nonprofit is 10 people or 10,000, you are eligible to start using Gmail, Calendar, Drive and more,” says Katie Kellogg with the Google for Nonprofits team.

“Google Apps for Nonprofits allows your organization to reduce IT costs and helps your team collaborate more effectively,” says Kellogg. “The suite of tools uses cloud computing to securely store and update documents, calendars and email in real-time – meaning you can access data anywhere, anytime. Google manages all of the updating and maintenance in the cloud, so you’ll never be required to install hardware or update software. And if you need help, we have a 24/7 support team available.”

New users can join the Google for Nonprofits program here. Google will then send instructions on how to enroll. There’s also a guide here.

In other Google/nonprofit-related news, Google.org is donating millions of dollars for increased access to the Internet in emerging markets.
