Videos are a great way to raise awareness and share a story or experience. They are also a cost-effective way to connect with your supporters, volunteers, and donors. Videos can be a powerful way to show your organization's impact and needs.


YouTube allows individuals and organizations to share and watch videos. It is a forum to distribute your organization's videos for free. Additionally, YouTube currently runs a nonprofit program - the YouTube Nonprofit Program - that allows organizations branding capabilities and increased uploading capacity, the option to drive fundraising through a Google Checkout "Donate" button, listing on the nonprofit channels and the nonprofit videos pages and the ability to add a call-to-action overlay on videos. Nonprofits must apply to be part of the YouTube Nonprofit Program. Below are examples of how some Ombudsmen have used YouTube to share videos.
