Human Resource (HR) Volunteer/Internship Opportunity

Join Changing The Present to Get Experience and Make a Difference!

An Amazon.com of the Nonprofit World

The New York Times called Changing The Present an "amazon.com of the nonprofit world" for our work in channeling to nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. We make the experience of giving a donation in a friend’s name feel like a memorable gift. That involves tangible giving opportunities (preserve an acre of the rain forest, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.), beautiful personalized greeting cards, and wish lists and registries.

Internship Description

  • Take a leadership role in our HR department as we build our nonprofit team to capture for nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying presents.
  • As a part of our HR team, you will help as we recruit, interview, onboard, and lead a team of interns, volunteers, and campus reps. Some of them will focus on their professional or academic specialties (accounting, design, technology, etc.), while others focus on their favorite cause (women, environment, children, etc.).
  • Assume real responsibility.
  • Work with others on our dynamic and creative international team who share your commitment to making the world a better place, and do work that matters.
  • We offer a great experience and the chance to make a tremendous positive impact in the world.


  • We welcome undergraduates, grad students, or professionals
  • We are conveniently located at 7th Avenue and 33 Street, across from Penn Station in Manhattan.
  • Full-time or part-time.

About Changing The Present


401 7th Avenue, level B, New York, NY 10001, US

Mission Statement

We are launching our new website, 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.


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 "amazon.com 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 more popular causes.
