How do I create a large quantity of email addresses or Google accounts?

I need to create several hundred email addresses. I would prefer to create Google accounts and use the Gmail addresses. These need to be free accounts and not G Suite for Business accounts.

These are not for spamming or scamming. Rather, we are a non-profit organization configuring several hundred Kindle devices for students in remote areas around the world. To do this, we need to create hundreds of Amazon accounts using hundreds of unique email addresses. While the creation of the Amazon accounts will be laborious, I think I can do it. We will configure one device per Amazon account, and each account will purchase 60 books. I would like to use Gmail addresses/Google accounts for email, as I am not yet sure if we will be using Kindle, Kindle Fire, or the Kindle app on an Android tablet. If we go with the app, then we will need to use Google Play, which will require a Google Account.

Once each device is loaded and configured, the email/Gmail/Google account as well as the Amazon account (and loaded device) will be handed over to the end user who will take ownership of the Amazon and Google account. We will be providing these as gifts; we are not reselling accounts and devices.

What is the best way to create many Google accounts without raising red flags? In the end, we need around 250 accounts. We don't need to create them all at once.

You will do better contacting goofle about this issue.  If you get caught doing this without their approval, no matter what your reasons are, all those accounts will be deactivated.

I can't speak to whether this is ok to do, but if I wanted to do it without raising red flags, all from the same computer, I would install a VPN service, such as Private Internet Access (there are many others, but I think all charge a subscription fee), and use Chrome in incognito mode (close and reopen it after each account is created).  I'd change my VPN IP after each time I created 2 or 3 accounts.

Thank you for the input. I'm not 100% sure of how we will proceed, but this has been very helpful.

Have you tried google's nonprofit program. You can essentially a G Suite account for free and you can create the accounts you need as a csv.

Should take only a few minutes to apply, or they might at least point you in the right direction if you contact them.
