Nonprofit Fire was founded to support socially-conscious causes through marketing and advertising.
About Nonprofit Fire
Nonprofit Fire is a marketing and advertising agency for nonprofits.
We provide free and paid services to help nonprofits:
- Get their message out to the world on a massive scale
- Build large, online communities
- Bolster fundraising
Our specialty is educating nonprofits about Google Ad Grants, as well as creatively using these ongoing advertising grants to help nonprofits.
Google provides $10,000 per month in online advertising, on an ongoing basis, and for no cost, to eligible nonprofits ($120,000 per year).
This website provides free information about the advantages and disadvantages of Google Ad Grants, as well as free information and training on how to use it.
A good place to start is by downloading The Good And Bad of Google Ad Grants, which provides an informed overview, a strategic roadmap and experienced words of caution. The report is free and is valuable to nonprofits who are learning about Google Ad Grants and for those who have it and wish to know how to use it.
For eligible nonprofits that don’t already have Google Ad Grants, we can get it for you.
We had Google Ad Grants but we weren’t seeing much in the way of results, even though we were paying a professional to manage it. Nonprofit Fire developed a new campaign for us and we went from a handful of inquiries a month to many hundreds of new people joining our community every month. If you want to get your nonprofit message out to the world, I highly recommend Nonprofit Fire!

A new kind of character education
We started working locally to help teenagers learn more about a career in the fire services. We didn’t even have a website. Nonprofit Fire got us online and on local TV and expanded our vision internationally. Our ‘story’ was simplified and advertised with Google Ad Grants, which I had never even heard of. Since then, every single day new people join the thousands in our online community. It never stops. And we’re just getting started!

Founder of NonProfit Fire
Located in downtown Ventura, CA., Nonprofit Fire is a subsidiary of Skyworks Marketing, both founded by George Alger. (Skyworks Marketing is for commercial entities and Nonprofit Fire is for nonprofit organizations).
George has been a community and nonprofit advocate for over two decades, highlighted in recent years through supporting hundreds of nonprofit organizations and community advocates through his award-winning, weekly television series, Our Ventura TV.
Additionally, George has been a marketing and advertising professional for over two decades, including as an executive on a team that built a health product and information business from nothing to over $100 million dollars in 3 years, through online marketing, direct mail and national TV advertising.
Furthermore, he wrote The Good and Bad of Google Ad Grants to help nonprofits determine if Google Ad Grants is worth the effort for their nonprofit.
He also developed the Google Ad Grants Story Triangle to help nonprofits gain more value from Google Ad Grants.
And for those nonprofits who wish to use Google Ad Grants, he created the free, educational training series, How To Use Google Ad Grants.
