ABOUT US

The New York Times called our nonprofit, ChangingThePresent.org , " an Amazon.com of the nonprofit world ." We help channel to leading nonprofits some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. We do this by making the experience of a donation, which you give in a friend’s name, feel like a rewarding present and a nice alternative to buying yet more unwanted merchandise.

Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this type of meaningful giving! Each 1% of the money now spent on presents is $4.5 billion a year to make the world a bet ter place.

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE WITH MORE OR LESS TIME

We also have other roles that you might want to consider:

● Virtual LGB TQ+ Awareness I nternship : 10 to 40 hours per week.

Assume a leadership role on our team. For more information about that more extensive role, please see [URL]).

● Community Engagement Interns: 4 hours per week

Raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and our program at your college.

● Ambassador for LGBTQ+ : Just 1 minute per day. (That is not a typo).

Do a simple daily task to make a difference.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER CAUSES AND ROLES

In addition to the LGBTQ+ awareness , we are also recruiting for a wide range of positions, including:

● other charitable causes and communities, e.g., ethnic, religious, and country ● professional interests, such as communications, public relations, social media, graphics, database, technology, finance, and marketing ● K-12 Education ● other college roles, such a s Greek Life and athletics.

GREAT EXPERIENCE; UNPAID

We offer a great experience and the opportunity to make a difference. However, as an emerging nonprofit, we only have unpaid positions. Some colleges have funding for students interning with nonprofits, and we are glad to participate in those programs.

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.
