YouTube’s new Nonprofit Offering

, Friday, September 28th, 2007

We’ve been talking a lot about Facebook lately (well, actually John Brian has been talking a lot about Facebook lately), and now YouTube seems to have noticed that it’s system may provide some unique possitilities for Nonprofits.

Available only to 501(3)(c) Organizations YouTube – Broadcast Your Cause is a new offering allowing you to create your own “Nonprofit Channel” with:

  • Premium branding capabilities and increased uploading capacity
  • Rotation of your videos in the ‘Promoted Videos’ areas throughout the site
  • The option to embed a Google Checkout “Donate” button, and fundraising without transaction costs.

Sounds pretty good up front. There’s not a whole lot of information available on the site right now, but it’s probably something worth keeping an eye on.
