When will Finland be included in the Google Grants list? Rainer L 11/30/11 1:29 AM
Hi

We are a nonprofit organization www.starofhope.fi 
Our sister organization in Sweden is eligible for grants since Sweden is involved in the Google Grants program.
- Can we in Finland apply to the US directly in order to get the grants for adding words in the Finnish language? Or should we just sit and wait for Google to include Finland in the Grants program?

BR.

Hi Rainer,

Unfortunately, you are going to have to wait.

From my understanding, there are typically two main reasons why the Google grants program is not offered in a particular country.
1) The legal aspects of offering the program in that country have not been fully worked out. Each country has their own policies and procedures for working with nonprofit organizations.
2) Google does not have the resources in that country to support the program. While Google may have an office there, that office may not have an AdWords group and other personnel typically used in the grants support team.  

All the best,
Robert
