Apply for Free Facebook Ads for Your Nonprofit by Nov. 15

By on Monday, November 2, 2015

With support from Facebook, ActionSprout is helping nonprofits try out and use Facebook ads for free this holiday giving season.

Registered US 501(c)3 organizations can apply by November 15, 2015 to get access to up to $1,500 in ad credits to use from December through February. With the support of Facebook, ActionSprout is giving away up to $2 million dollars in advertising to 2,000 nonprofits.

APPLY BEFORE NOVEMBER 15, 2015: You must be invited to apply for the grant. Here is your personal invitation to apply!

Note: You need to have an ad account already attached to your nonprofit’s Facebook page to apply. This can be set up without charge through your Facebook admin interface (I did it for one of the pages I manage), but do the setup before you apply. Unlike Google, Facebook has historically not provided advertising grants to nonprofit organizations, so this is a huge opportunity for nonprofits.

If you have never tried Facebook advertising before for your nonprofit agency or want to try some new things during the holiday giving period – this is a great way to try it out and see if it will work for you!
