Intern or Volunteer with ChangingThePresent.org to Help Latino Charities and Make a Difference!

What You Get Out of the Experience

  • Make a difference: Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent to help us channel to Latino nonprofits-or other causes you care about-some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.
  • Become a member of our dynamic and creative international team, and be a leader among those who care for the same causes as you do.
  • Work from our Manhattan office or remotely.
  • Enhance your resume with a record of accomplishment and service, and get a glowing letter of recommendation.

Use and enhance your professional skills in any of these fields: strategy, partnerships, finance, communications, social media, graphics, research, community management, fundraising, sponsorships, Public Relations (PR), Human Resources (HR), marketing, event management, organizing, and activism. We can provide more information about specific opportunities when we know what you want to focus on.

Focus on Latino Charities or Your Other Favorite Cause

At ChangingThePresent you can focus on Latino charities or any other favorite cause.

We Channel New Funds to Nonprofits

The New York Times called ChangingThePresent.org an "amazon.com of the nonprofit world" for our work in helping nonprofits capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.

A growing number of people, who seek meaning more than things, are starting to show their love by donating in a friend’s name in lieu of buying yet more "stuff."

The challenge for nonprofits is that it is simply too daunting to provide the requisite gift-like experience (tangible charitable gifts, wish lists and registries, and personalized printed greeting cards) that can make a donation feel like a rewarding gift. ChangingThePresent.org provides those tools to facilitate this type of giving for nonprofits and donors.

We are about to take ChangingThePresent to the next level. That involves expanding from the initial 400 organizations to invite all 1.1 million nonprofits; adding additional causes and categories. Within each cause area, we will seek growth funding, invite advisors, recruit nonprofits, use media and social media to raise awareness among the public, and recruit celebrities to lend their voices.

Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this type of meaningful giving.

The Work Environment

This is a great place to work. We have had interns and volunteers from all over the United States and more than forty countries. The atmosphere is energetic, creative, and fun. We value brainstorming, initiative, sharing, and collaborating. Think of it is a laboratory, studio, seminar, or incubator. We are also casual. We are interested in your brains, creativity and heart, rather than your attire. Want to work in jeans, t-shirt and flip-flops? That’s fine with us.

Who, Where, When

  • We are glad to hear from high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as professionals who want to make a meaningful impact with their skills.
  • Work at our office or remotely. We are conveniently located at 7th Avenue and 33 Street, across from Penn Station in Manhattan.
  • Full-time or part-time, school-year or summer, day or evening, weekday or weekend. We are glad to have your help whenever and wherever you are available.
  • We provide a great opportunity to make a meaningful change in the world, but this is an unpaid position.

About Changing The Present

Location:

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.

Description

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.
