Are Gmail accounts through Google for nonprofits branded?
Google for Non Profits offers a fantastic program for NPO's, including Gmail accounts. I am having trouble clarifying that these accounts utilize the organization's branded e-mail/domain, rather than Gmail. Based on some of the high-level status of some of the NPO's using this service, my assumption is they are branded, but I thought I'd ask and see what others may have experienced with this service... Thank you!
Gmail accounts through Google for nonprofits are NOT branded. Just like regular Gmail accounts these allow the NPO to add a unique domain based email address which will be attached to all outgoing email and incoming mail. The process is quite easy, feel free contact for further assistance. Basically you can brand it if you feel you want...of course you would
Hi Jessica, yes you can create emails using Google that reflect your custom domain, please contact us directly for more info.
Yes, Google App accounts are branded with the NGO's domain name. One example that I am very familiar with is digitaldividedata.com / digitaldividedata.org.
Jessica, Just so you know. If your clients are signed up with us at Comcast Business, You already have a 3 page site and domain you can utilize at no charge. All the google account info is true.
Jessica - Yes, you can use your custom domain with Google Apps (aka Gmail etc). Once you login as administrator, you will get an option 'Manage your domain' where you can further customise what your users will see. You can replace the Gmail logo with yours. Users will be provided a url to login to the email system by Goggle as soon as you create one, though anyone can login by simply www.gmail.com and typing full user id with the domain name. Any help, do ask.
Please note that to have your e-mails appear as if they're coming from your non-profit's web domain that you'll need to set it up to send through the SMTP server. If you don't do that it'll say that it has been sent by your Gmail account on your behalf.

A different email provider
since you have access to google apps, it automatically means you have mails under your own domain name (or branded email as you call it)
