About ChangingThePresent
ChangingThePresent is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which helps channel to nonprofits some of the $250 Americans spend each year on birthday, holiday, and other gifts, by making the experience of giving a donation in a friend’s name feel like a gift with tangible giving opportunities, wish lists, registries, and beautiful, personalized printed greeting cards. The New York Times referred to the site as an " of the nonprofit world." You may recognize this as the approach proven by Heifer International, which raises $115 million a year by letting people donate to fund farm animals in a friend’s name. If farm animals can attract that much money, imagine how much is available for other larger nonprofits. The Next Phase
We are about to launch the next phase of this nonprofit, which involves inviting the participation of all one million nonprofits, providing each with their own private gift site, and promoting this growing social norm: you don’t have to buy stuff to show your love; instead, you can do something meaningful in a friend’s name. Responsibilities
Interns will work in teams focused on specific causes they care about (environment, animals, hunger, etc.). They will:
* Develop strategies to grow awareness and participation
* Recruit volunteers to assist in their efforts
* Invite nonprofits to join the site
* Build strategic partnerships with associations of nonprofits and affinity groups of funders
* Grow awareness through media, social media, organizations, and thought leaders whose audiences care about that cause
* Invite the participation of celebrities who care about the cause Requirements
* Undergraduate, graduate student, or recent graduate (including OPT).
* Smart, self-starter, quick learner and team player.
* Proficient with Microsoft Office applications
* Happy to work in an energetic, creative, and supportive environment with interns from around the world.
