You can also focus on any aspect of college life, such as:

Unpaid / Possible Credit

We offer a great experience. We are a nonprofit, and so:

  • This is an unpaid position.
  • It is eligible for credit and for community service hours at many schools and colleges.

About Changing The Present

We help nonprofits and schools capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.


We do that by making the experience of a donation, which you give in a friend's name, feel like a rewarding present and an appealing alternative to buying yet more "stuff." We provide:

  • tangible charitable gifts (provide books for children, fund cataract surgery to restore a blind person's eyesight, etc.)
  • personalized printed greeting cards
  • wish lists and registries
  • gift cards, etc.

This slideshow shows how it works.

Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this more meaningful type of giving!
