We love working with great people who are doing great things around the world, including the South African based nonprofit TRADE-MARK.
TRADE-MARK is one of the latest recipients of a Google Ad Grants award. The Google Ad Grants program supports registered nonprofit organizations that share Google's philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy, and the arts. Google Ad Grants is an in-kind advertising program that awards free online advertising to nonprofits via Google AdWords.
TRADE-MARK’s mission is to create opportunities for tradesmen from the townships to grow successful businesses through connecting them with clients and providing business and life skills training. For more information on hiring a TRADE-MARK tradesman for your next renovation or what the organization is accomplishing, check out their website.
One of their most recent achievements includes being recognized at 5 For Change, an annual black tie fundraiser dedicated to raising awareness about 5 inspiring social enterprises which are changing the way Cape Town gives back. If you are in Cape Town and haven't attended yet, then check out the 2015 event video to see what you missed and be sure to go next year.
First time hearing about the Google Grant program? Learn more here and how your nonprofit can benefit. As we like to say - if someone is going to give your nonprofit $10,000 a month, take it.
