See what other nonprofits (like yours) are online. Check out the competition. 6. Create a Google Calendar for yourself and encourage others. Test the power of sharing. 7. Spend some quality alone time with Google. Apply for a Google Grant. This allows you to be featured when people do a key word search on topics that are related to your nonprofit. Take a look at Google Checkout. 8. Visit your organization’s profile on Network for Good. If you submit an IRS Form 990, you’re already there.
