In a previous post we had explained how the Public Interest Registry (PIR) had planned to expand its portfolio. PIR had partnered with Donuts Inc. to acquire .foundation, .charity and .gives to its set of existing domain name extensions.
Now, these extensions have been integrated into the PIR’s .org family of domains. With this addition PIR’s family includes extensions like .org, .ngo, .ong, .foundation, .charity and .gives.
PIR had also signed a deal with Giving limited for the extension .giving. This is expected to frutify at the end of the year. This extension can be used aptly for fundraising campaigns, Corporates Social Responsibilities of Businesses, charities, etc. This will be another feather in PIR’s cap.
PIR has been dedicated to provide digital support to mission driven organisations. With the new extensions in its portfolio, non-profit organisations would have a number of choices to choose from and can provide a more clear and targeted message to their audience.
A few weeks ago PIR had invited applications for its Advisory Council. Through his process PIR seeks to appoint up to 5 new faces in its council. Applications will be accepted till September 30, 2022.
