Focus on Your Other Favorite Cause At ChangingThePresent you can focus on any of your favorite causes. We Channel New Funds to Nonprofits Americans spend $250 billion a year on birthday, holiday, and other presents, most of which make no difference in the lives of those who receive them. Tons of sweaters, furry slippers, and ties end up in the dark corners of our closets. Meanwhile, thousands of non-profit organizations desperately need more funding to help and make a difference in their lives. Some people, who seek meaning more than things, are starting to make donations in a friend?s name in lieu of giving traditional presents. However, most nonprofits cannot provide the rewarding gift-like experience?wish lists, gift registries, and personalized printed greeting cards?required to make that feel like a rewarding gift. ChangingThePresent.org provides those tools to facilitate this type of giving for nonprofits and donors. Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this as a norm. About ChangingThePresent.org The New York Times called us an ?amazon.com of the nonprofit world? for our work in helping 400 leading nonprofits capture money normally spent on traditional presents. Now, we are about to offer this opportunity to all million nonprofits. You can help us reach all nonprofits as well as individuals who would rather support them than buy another vase or picture frame. This is a great place to work.

We value brainstorming, initiative, sharing, and collaborating. Think of it is a laboratory, studio, seminar, or incubator. We are also casual.
