An Issue of Concern to All Nonprofits

Community Partners has signed on, with CalNonprofits and 20,000 other nonprofit organizations and individuals, to a petition opposing the proposed sale of the .ORG domain registry to a private equity firm. Critics in the nonprofit sector feel strongly that this could impact the millions of individuals and organizations that operate a .ORG website, subjecting them to potential censorship and the possibility of price increases on domain registration and renewals. Even Congress is looking into the issue.

You can join the petition here. A group of charitable web leaders has launched a nonprofit cooperative organization as an alternative to the proposed sale, which you can read about here.
