Intern or Volunteer with Changing The Present to Help Veterans and Make a Difference!
About Changing The Present
The New York Times called us an " Amazon.com of the nonprofit world."
ChangingThePresent.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We help channel to nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, holiday, and other gifts. We do that by making the experience of a donation, given in a friend’s name, feel like a great gift and a meaningful alternative to buying yet more "stuff." That involves tangible giving opportunities (preserve an acre of the rain forest, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.), personalized greeting cards, wish lists and registries. Imagine how much good we can do together as more and more people show their love with meaningful donations.
Overview of the Opportunity
- Help us capture for nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying presents.
- Become a member of our dynamic and creative international team
- Assume real responsibility. No coffee runs here! Be a leader among those who share your commitment to making the world a better place, and do work that matters. We offer an outstanding experience and an opportunity to change the world, but as an emerging nonprofit organization, we have only unpaid positions.
- Work from our Manhattan office (conveniently located right across from Penn Station) or remotely. Full-time or part-time; school-year or summer.
We have an outstanding team and an important mission, so we are highly selective in our hiring. We seek outstanding applicants with a record of accomplishment.
We are recruiting interns and volunteers to focus on the cause of Veterans and capture for veterans’ nonprofits some of the fortune now spent buying traditional presents. Interns and volunteers focused on this cause strategize, research, and reach out to potential advisors; philanthropists, corporations, and foundations for growth funding; nonprofits; and the public, via media, social media, professional associations, student organizations, and celebrities.
