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. 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.

Theatre and Development

INTERNSHIP-The Summer Leadership Forum

The Summer Student Leadership Forum, held from May - August, is a 10 week internship program designed to give students hands-on experience in an Off-Broadway, non-profit theatre company. We offer internships in Development, General Management, Literary Management, Marketing, Production, and Stage Management.


Hands on Learning- Based on the interest of the student and needs of the theatre, each student is placed in a specific department within the company. The intern will have a departmental mentor who will oversee their work. Prior experience is not necessary though some computer skills are essential

Forum - Over the course of the program, participants meet with guest speakers to experience a wide range of perspectives on both the administrative and artistic aspects of a non-profit theatre company. Past forum meetings guests have included Second Stage's artistic and management staff, professional directors, playwrights, composers and designers.

Study Guides - SLF participants are split into teams to read and discuss scripts for our upcoming productions. Under the guidance of Second Stage's artistic staff, they write creative and critical responses to the texts. Their writing becomes a key component of our study guides.

Group Projects- The aim of the group project is to challenge interns to think about larger scope questions that are integral to our company. Interns will work in teams to devise a business proposal answering one of these larger scope questions. Upon completion, interns have the opportunity to present their projects to Second Stage's senior staff and selective members of our Board of Trustees. This project provides students with practical, real-world experience under the guidance of Second Stage staff.

WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT? - The Summer Student Leadership Forum requires a minimum commitment of 10 weeks. Applicants will not be considered unless they are able to commit to the full summer program. We expect a willingness to work hard and high standards of performance. In return, interns are treated as members of our professional staff and receive intensive hands-on experience. We ask that all interns be reliable, conscientious and energetic. Interns will typically work 20 hours/week.

ABOUT SECOND STAGE THEATRE- Second Stage Theatre produces an adventurous range of premieres, musicals, bold new interpretations of contemporary plays, and unique theatrical experiences from America's most dynamic writers of the 21st century. Through the discovery of emerging talent, the commissioning of new work, and the creation of a training base for directors, Second Stage reflects the diverse city and the world we live in today and reaches an ever-growing audience through its Broadway runs, national tours and regional productions.
