I sat on the Board of the Edgewater Development Corporation for five years and co-chaired its Marketing Committee. If you are familiar with not-for-profit organization you know that they are frequently (and increasingly) under funded. So a Google Grant that I help arrange for the organization is coming in very handy. It is an in-kind grant that powers an AdWords campaign on Google to up to $10,000 per month. It has multiplied traffic to the website year-over-year again again. This goes a long way in promoting the mission of the EDC: to attract business to the Edgewater neighborhood. It also has the benefit of increasing the total amount of funding to the organization that can be claimed in future grant applications.
