New Internship Opportunities for your consideration

Changing the Present

Want to help animals

  • Here is the opportunites you have been looking for:

Major(s): All Majors

About Changing the Present:
ChangingThePresent.org provides a gift-like experience, which helps 400 leading nonprofits capture money normally spent on traditional presents. The NY Times called it an “amazon.com of the nonprofit world.” While a million nonprofits desperately need more funding, Americans spend $250 billion a year on birthday, holiday, and other presents. A pioneering nonprofit, Heifer International, has shown that nonprofits can capture some of that money by making donations, given in a friend’s name, feel like a present. It works! They raise $123 million a year this way. Imagine how much more gift money could be captured by nonprofits addressing popular causes, including your favorites. The challenge is that it is too daunting for most nonprofits to provide a gift-like experience: tangible donation opportunities, wish lists, gift registries, and personalized printed greeting cards. We make it easy.

  • Make the world a better place. You can help nonprofits that assist animals (as well as other causes you care about) capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying presents.
  • Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent.
  • Assume responsibility. Be a leader.
  • Learn a tremendous amount.
  • Work with great people from around the world and have the best time.
  • Enhance your resume and get a glowing letter recommendation.
  • Work in our Manhattan office or remotely.
  • You will engage nonprofits, foundations, associations, thought leaders, media, social media, partners, and celebrities. You will help grow the movement to facilitate and encourage this type of meaningful giving.

Focus on animals and your other favorite cause

This internship or volunteer experience may be the single greatest opportunity to help countless animals. You can:

  • Recruit more interns, volunteers, and evangelist.
  • Research corporate sponsors and philanthropic funders.
  • Help us get word of this opportunity to all million nonprofits.
  • Help raise awarness via magazines, websites, blogs, social media, professional associations, student organizations, and celebrities.

Love the wedding and bridal sector

You can help us raise awareness and encourage this type of giving. We will be reaching out to wedding magazines, websites, blogs, planners, photographers, designers, social media leaders, YouTube stars, and others connected to the wedding market.

  • Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent to connect with the wedding industry and make the world a better place.
