Our .ORG community is beautiful and powerful.

Celebrating .ORGs that are making a profound and positive impact on the world.

For more than 30 years, the .ORG domain has powered the missions of people and organizations around the globe. From individuals to large corporations, small community groups to multinational NGOs, each .ORG works to positively impact the communities it serves.


In 2020, .ORGs were needed more than ever before as the world came to grips with the global effects of the pandemic. The 2021 .ORG Impact Awards (OIAs) recognizes .ORGs that have achieved great and impactful things, often with little resources and against sometimes overwhelming challenges. These people and organizations work tirelessly in pursuit of their missions – not for recognition or reward, but to simply make the world a better place.


Now in its third year, the .ORG Impact Awards continues to evolve and change to keep up with the times and global climate. Our online event this fall will enable us to put even more focus on celebrating the accomplishments of our award finalists, we’ve even upped the cash donation amounts across the board to provide winning .ORGs with greater assistance and support. Though 100% online, the 2021 .ORG Impact Awards will continue to celebrate .ORG domain users of all kinds and causes for their accomplishments in community mobilization, outreach, and mission achievement.
