Nominate your organization for the 2021 .ORG Impact Awards

We’re excited to announce that nominations are open for the third annual .ORG Impact Awards, honoring outstanding organizations for their positive impact on the community – including mobilization, outreach, and fulfillment of their mission.

“At a pivotal time in our global communities, mission-driven organizations are helping, healing, and inspiring us,” says Jon Nevett, President and CEO of Public Interest Registry, the people behind the .ORG domain. “The .ORG Impact Awards recognize the remarkable organizations and individuals that make the world a better place.”

The 2021 nominees will be recognized for their work in a wide range of important areas, from promoting health and healing during the pandemic to addressing global climate change and fighting hunger and poverty.

Category winners will receive a donation of $10,000 USD, and the .ORG of the Year will be awarded $35,000 USD. Submissions are open through July 30.

.ORG Impact Award winners also have the opportunity to raise valuable awareness for their organizations – as well as their causes and missions. Just ask Google Domains .ORG registrant and 2020 award winner Change Labs, which works to increase the number of Native American-owned small businesses operating in tribal communities.

“Change Labs is a young organization, and it was validating to be recognized for our impact and achievements thus far,” says Executive Director Heather Fleming. “I now start almost every intro sentence with ‘Change Labs is an award-winning Navajo nonprofit …’ and that’s huge!”

Fleming went on to say that the funding would help further the organization’s mission, and that being in the company of distinguished fellow nominees and winning was a morale boost for the entire organization. The positive press generated by the award was beneficial as well.

“There are many stories out there about the struggles of Native people,” says Fleming. “So to have a Navajo organization be recognized for its achievements is a big step in the direction towards shifting the narrative to what Native people are, and what we’ll do to address our own social challenges.”
