YouTube Launches Channels for Non-Profits

Via Democracy Resource Center:

URL: YouTube has launched a program that enables non-profit organizations [note, this is for those with 501(c)(3) tax status] to setup their own channels free of charge. The channels enable non-profits to upload public service announcements, footage of their work, and calls to action. Additionally, the channels allow non-profits to use Google Checkout to collect donations without being charged any fees. YouTube also plans to launch a central location where users will be able to browse all of the non-profit channels. For the moment, you can browse some of the channels that have been created so far on the YouTube NonProfit Program page. A number of high-profit charities have already signed on to participate, including The Clinton Global Initiative, the American Cancer Society, and the March of Dimes.
