Is your church a registered non-profit, 501(c)(3)?

If you are under the covering of an organization that is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and have a designation letter to establish your legal status, that works too. 

Does your church have an EIN (Employer Identification Number)?

Could your church be classified as any of the following: A governmental entity, a hospital, health care organization, a school, an academic institution, or university? 

Only answer yes if the primary function of your ministry is one of the above. Google has separate grant programs for these kinds of organizations. If your church has a school of ministry or daycare that operates alongside the church, that's ok.

Is your church website secured via SSL?

You can tell this by looking for a "lock" symbol next to your church web address. If you click on it, it will tell you if the site is secure or not. If it is not, or you are unsure, don't worry, we can help.
