Mission Statement:

We help them capture some of the $450 billion that Americans, alone, spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. We do so by making the experience of donating in a friend’s name feel like a rewarding alternative to buying and giving more “stuff.” Visitors can choose from among thousands of tangible gift opportunities (preserve an acre of the rainforest, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.) from hundreds of leading nonprofits, send personalized printed greeting cards, and share wish lists & registries.

Additional Information:

ChangingThePresent has had interns from more than fifty countries around the world. Outstanding student interns take leadership roles in our organization. They can work within their own professional field (HR, graphics, communications, technology, accounting, social media, research, finance, management, marketing, supply chain management, etc.). They can also choose to focus on their favorite charitable cause.
