This summer I had the opportunity to work with UniversalGiving as an Operations and Administrative Intern and I look forward to remaining involved with UniversalGiving on a more limited basis. UniversalGiving provided invaluable training and guidance and then gave me the freedom and responsibility to perform tasks that made a real contribution to the organization. I thoroughly enjoyed working amongst a motivated, dedicated, and innovative group of people who truly believe in social entrepreneurship and helping our global community.

Like others have stated, the atmosphere here is amazing. The people are great, the HUB is fantastic, and the mission of the company is awesome as well. The staff is encouraging and very helpful. It is apparent they really care about getting volunteers and interns quality experience. Being able to help out with an organization as charitable as UniversalGiving and gaining the experience they provide was an opportunity I couldn't pass up!

With a strong interest in international NGO work, my internship experience with UniversalGiving was the perfect opportunity for me to become more familiar with the field as well as do my part in helping the global community at large. My time working in the UG office as an NGO Services intern has truly been learning, fun, and growing experience. I quickly became part of the team and was regarded as any other professional coworker. This internship was an entry-level position for me, however, I felt as though I gained more experience and was given more responsibility than most regular internships. I would encourage anyone to become a part of the UG team and become a part of a group of people who are truly dedicated to their cause.

UniversalGiving is a small group of highly devoted people who want to make the world a better place by involving everyone in donating or volunteering in whatever ways they can. They use all the possible methods to make it safe and easy for people to get involved with activities around the world. The ability to choose from a variety of locations and topics allows the user to explore the many ways they can make a difference. What is most impressive is that UniversalGiving does this all for free to the user; no fees are required for their service. UniversalGiving makes giving back to the community and the world so much easier and for that they should be applauded. Thank you, UniversalGiving.

UniversalGiving is a non-profit that is really making a difference. In contrast to other organizations, 100% of money donated to an organization will reach the organization. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and very committed to the cause of the organization. If you are a corporation seeking consulting services for corporate giving, there is a team of people to support you. If you are an NGO interested in advertising on the site or becoming a part of our database, there is also a team to help you and ensure that your organization gets assistance by pairing you with volunteers and donors interested in helping you!
