The purpose of the Non Commercial Stakeholder Group (NCSG) is to represent, through its elected representatives and its Constituencies, the interests and concerns of noncommercial registrants and noncommercial Internet users of generic Top-level Domains (gTLDs). It provides a voice and representation in ICANN processes to:  non-profit organizations that serve noncommercial interests; nonprofit services such as education, philanthropies, consumer protection, community organizing, promotion of the arts, public interest policy advocacy, children's welfare, religion, scientific research, and human rights; public interest software concerns; families or individuals who register domain names for noncommercial personal use; and Internet users who are primarily concerned  with the noncommercial, public interest aspects of domain name policy.

NCSG is the nature place for civil society and individuals sharing the same non-commercial values to be involved in ICANN and influence its policies regarding new gTLD but also its strategy.

The NCSG is an umbrella for the Non-Commercial Users Constituency (NCUC) and Not-for-Profit Operational Concerns (NPOC).
