.ORG launched the
program that honors “remarkable organizations and individuals making
the world a better place” in
2019 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

evidenced by results and/or contributions to its sector, constituents,
community or society at large.
