The 2020 .ORG Impact Awards

About the Award

For more than 30 years, the .ORG domain has powered the inspirations of people around the globe. From individuals to large corporations, small community groups to multinational NGOs, each .ORG aims to positively impact the communities they serve.

The 2020 .ORG Impact Awards (OIAs) recognize .ORGs that are exemplary—those that serve as shining examples of how people can achieve great things—often with little resources and against significant 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.

The 2020 version of the .ORG Impact Awards is different by circumstance but not in intent. Amidst an unprecedented (in most of our lifetimes) global pandemic, the 2020 program has transformed into a 10-day digital experience —”The Ten Days of .ORG”—that will enable us to put more focus on award finalists and provide greater assistance to winning .ORGs through substantially larger cash donations.  Though 100% online, the 2020 OIAs will continue to celebrate .ORG domain users of all kinds and causes for their accomplishments in community mobilization, outreach, and mission achievement.
