  • Environmental Internship with Changing The Present

    Changing The Present



    Help environmental (and other) nonprofits capture additional funding they need to do their important work

    Overview of the Project Opportunity

    The New York Times called ChangingThePresent.org an “amazon.com of the nonprofit world.” We help channel to nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. We do this by making the experience of a donation, given in a friend’s name, feel like a rewarding gift and an appealing alternative to giving yet more "stuff."

    We offer thousands of opportunities from hundreds of leading nonprofits. Preserve an acre of the rainforest, fund an hour of cancer research, provide school children with their first book, etc. Wish lists and registries let you share your dreams for a better world. Personalized greeting cards make a charitable gift especially memorable. Gift cards let your friends support the things they care about.

    The Problem this Project Addresses

    Quite simply, environmental and other nonprofits do not have enough funding for their important work.

    The Impact of this Project

    Imagine the impact as more people adopt this meaningful type of giving. Even 1% of the money now spent on presents would be $4.5 billion a year.

     

    Unprecedented Opportunities for Responsibility and Leadership


    Our interns get more responsibility than they will anywhere else. You will never run a copy machine, file papers, or fetch coffee here, as you might at so many other organizations. Instead, you will work in small teams and take a leadership role.

    You Benefit

    We want all our interns and volunteers to get the following from the experience here:
    • Make a tremendous positive impact in the world.
    • Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent.
    • Assume responsibility and take a leadership role.
    • Learn a tremendous amount.
    • Work with people from around the world in a diverse and supportive environment, and have a great time.
    • Enhance your resume with a record of achievement and community service.
