Free Facebook Ad Credits for Registered Nonprofits
ActionSprout, with support from Facebook, is distributing $2,000,000 in ad credits to thousands of nonprofits in order to help them start 2016 with more engaged fans and supporters.
I just received an email from +Drew Bernard
, announcing this very exciting new program for registered nonprofit organizations. I worked with Drew for 8 years or so, and he's a high quality guy. ActionSprout has been on the market for several years now, helping nonprofit organizations build better engagement on Facebook. This is a special deal they managed to negotiate with Facebook, nudging the company into a more proactive stance in helping the nonprofit sector. And please note: just because this invitation is customized as coming from me, I don't get any compensation or anything from this. I think they just added that to track how the offer is flowing through social networks, and possibly to make it feel more personal and exclusive.
In the spirit of full transparency, here is more detail on the offer, pulled from Drew's email to me today:Why are we doing this?
ActionSprout is on a mission to ensure nonprofits have the tools, strategies, and resources to tap into the full power of Facebook.
For the past three years we have created tools that help nonprofits build deeper relationships with more supporters through Facebook. In that time, we have learned that nonprofits have a significant advantage on Facebook because people care about causes and want their friends to see them supporting those causes.
Facebook ads have become a powerful and cost-effective tool for nonprofits to reach new people and convert them to advocates, volunteers, and donors. When used effectively, ads can have a remarkable impact on nonprofits of any size. So, when the opportunity came along to help make this project happen, we jumped on it! What's the opportunity?
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 15th to get access to up to $1,500 in ad credits to use from December through February. How can I help?
As a leader in the nonprofit sector, we hope you will help us quickly spread the word to your networks. All applicants must have an invite to apply and we have a special personalized link just for you to invite in anyone you wish.
Thanks for helping us spread the word and create impact for thousands of nonprofits over the next few months!
