If your organization is in another country, such as the United Kingdom, then would be ideal.

If your organization has a specific purpose that falls into one of the newer generic top-level domains, then choosing a generic name might be better than .org. If you organization is a school, for example, then .academy could be excellent.

There are some little-used TLDs such as .help, .support, and .guide, too.

If you are a cooperative, then .coop is perfect.

The full list of TLDs may be useful to you.

You can always use a domain name that signals your nonprofit status: or (and would still work).
