Google opening up online office suite to nonprofits

Google Apps is now nonprofit-friendly.

Today, Google is opening up its educational tier of Google Apps to nonprofit organizations within the United States. Registered 501c3 nonprofits will be able to use and deploy the educational version of Google Apps, which gives organizations unlimited users, free phone support, API integration, and e-mail migration (to transfer existing in-boxes to the Apps version of Gmail).

The company made the announcement this evening at the Google campus in Mountain View, CA where several nonprofits--including Mercy Corps,, NTEN, and the East Bay Community Recovery Project--announced their planned adoption of Google Apps.

The move is the latest in Google's public service programs, which include Google Grants and Google Earth Outreach.
