    Projects That Matter



    Outstanding Internship Opportunity
    Undergraduates, Grad Students, and Graduates (including OPT) are Welcome

     

    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.

    Please read more below . . .

    Overview of the Project Opportunity

    Be part of a national movement to channel essential new funds to nonprofits--some of the billions of dollars that would normally be spent on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.

     

    The Problem this Project Addresses

    No matter what cause you care about, the nonprofits addressing it simply do not have enough funding for their important work.

     

    Your Professional Focus or Your Favorite Cause

    We seek high-achievers to focus on their professional / academic field (HR, organizational psychology, marketing, communications, celebrities, social media, technology, design, research, etc.) or their favorite cause (hunger, environment, women, children, education, STEM education, health, etc.—we cover the entire range of charitable causes).

    Unprecedented Opportunities for Responsibility and Leadership 

    Our HR 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.

      

    The Impact of this Project 

    Imagine the impact as more and more people adopt this more meaningful type of giving. Each 1% of the money now spent on presents could provide nonprofits an additional $4.5 billion a year to make a difference.

    Region or Country Benefited by this Project

    The entire world.

    Where Will the Student or Volunteer Work?

    In our NYC office or virtually. We are conveniently located at 7th Avenue and 33 Streets in Manhattan.

    Academic Field or Expertise Sought

    Focus on your academic / professional field, including Social media; Communications; Finance; Research; Tech; Graphics; Human Resources; Management; etc.

    Or focus on your favorite cause (we cover all of them).

    Academic Level or Experience Sought

    At least undergraduate. Graduate or post-graduate, out of school ok.

    Start Date for Student

    We are always hiring good people.

    Commitment Duration

    At least 2 months. Longer is better.

    Commitment Hours per Week

    Part-time or full-time.
