Designers: Intern or Volunteer with ChangingThePresent.org to Make a Difference!

Major(s): Art and Design, Graphic Design- Changing The Present

  • Use your graphics skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent to make a difference.
  • Help us channel to nonprofits 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.
  • Enhance your resume and get a glowing letter of recommendation.

Our graphics interns/volunteers will work on websites, web banners, presentations, and marketing materials.

About ChangingThePresent.org
The New York Times called ChangingThePresent.org an “amazon.com of the nonprofit world” for our work in helping 400 leading nonprofits capture some of the fortune normally spent on traditional presents.

While a million nonprofits desperately need more funds to accomplish their missions, Americans spend $450 billion a year on birthday, holiday, and other presents. Most of those presents are not very rewarding. Tons of sweaters, fuzzy slippers, and ties end up in the dark corners of our closets.

It is no surprise that a growing number of people, who seek meaning more than “stuff”, are starting to show their love by donating in a friend’s name in lieu of giving traditional presents.

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 inviting all 1.1 million nonprofits, as well as 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.
