Intern or Volunteer with ChangingThePresent.org to Support African-American Nonprofits!
This may be the best possible internship for anyone interested in helping the African-American community.
• Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent to improve the lives of millions of men, women, and children who are aided by African-American nonprofits.
• Help us capture for nonprofits that assist African-American communities–or other causes you care about–some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying presents.
• Become a member of our dynamic and creative international team, and become a leader among those who care for the same causes as you do.
• Help us grow a movement to facilitate and encourage a new type of meaningful giving through direct engagement of nonprofits, foundations, associations, thought leaders, media, and celebrities.
• Work from our Manhattan office or remotely.
• Enhance your resume and get a glowing letter of recommendation.

Focus on African-American Nonprofits or Your Other Favorite Cause
At ChangingThePresent you can focus on African-American charities or any other favorite cause.
The New York Times called ChangingThePresent.org an “amazon.com of the nonprofit world” for our work in helping 400 leading nonprofits capture money normally spent on traditional presents.
At the same time that 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 things, 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.
Who, Where, When
• We are glad to hear from high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as professionals who want to make a meaningful impact with their skills.
