Finalists for 2020 .ORG Impact Awards Named With Top 5 Selected in 9 Different Categories

.ORG launched the
program that honors “remarkable organizations and individuals making
the world a better place
when Impact Award winners were chosen in three categories.
By expanding the number of categories to nine this year, .ORG will recognize
websites that have excelled in these areas: Combatting Coronavirus, Fighting
Hunger and Poverty, Championing Equality, Equity and Inclusion, Promoting
Education. Advancing Environmental Sustainability, Promoting a Safer
Internet, Innovation Award, Outstanding Volunteer and .ORG Newcomer of the
Year. The Impact Award winjners will get to select a non-profit or NGO organization of their choice to receive
up to a $30,000 contribution (depending on the award category). Nonprofit entrants are welcome to select their own nonprofit as the beneficiary of that donation. Individuals, for-profits and community groups are welcome to select any nonprofit they believe in to receive the donation.

The 2020 .ORG
Impact Award, .ORG of the Year, recognizes a not-for-profit or
nongovernmental organization nominated in one of the other nine categories
using the .ORG domain, and honors outstanding achievement as
evidenced by results and/or contributions to its sector, constituents,
community or society at large. 

Jon Nevett, President and CEO of
the Public
Interest Registry
(the administrator of .ORG), noted,
“In this year marked by so much challenge and change,
mission-driven .ORGs are making even more of an impact on the
communities and causes they serve and support. We celebrate their
contributions and recognize that .ORGs are making their communities
a better place. This year, we saw an extremely impressive group of
submissions (more than 500 were submitted) showcasing the diverse
and inspiring work taking place in the .ORG community around the
world, and we want to thank everyone who participated in the .ORG
Impact Awards.”

Nevett said that each of the 45
finalists spread across nine categories represent the best of what .ORGs
have to offer in making a meaningful difference in their communities
and the world, adding, “We are awed and inspired by their
achievements and look forward to announcing the winning .ORGs later
this fall.”
