Our Mission

We are already making the world a better place by encouraging and enabling people to show their love by making a meaningful charitable donation in a friend's name instead of buying yet more "stuff." Imagine how much good we could do with the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. Our nonprofit site makes it easy and rewarding.




A Very Efficient Nonprofit

Changing The Present is very cost-efficient. As a virtual nonprofit,

  • we do not have to pay for office space
  • we have no paid staff
  • we do not distribute any profits.


Expenses so We Can Serve You and Those in Need

However, we do have to pay for extensive software licenses, hosting costs, insurance, accounting costs, and other expenses in order to operate, to make a difference, and to provide you and your peers an internship and stop your OPT unemployment clock.


Interns are Helping
A number of our interns donated $250 when they got a job and ended their internship. One wrote,

"You totally saved me! If I had not found Changing The Present, I would have had to pay a fortune to some staffing company (some charge a $1k to $3k upfront fee plus 20-30% of my salary for one to three years). Otherwise, I would have had to leave the country when I ran out of unemployment days. Even if I found a job in time, unemployment days during first-year OPT are deducted from allowable unemployment days during the STEM extension. The $250 donation is just about one day's pay at my new job, so I am happy to help a nonprofit that helped me so much!"


Asking for Your Support

We hope that you see it the same way and will donate to support our work and the internships we provide you and other international students.



We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and this contribution is tax-deductible when you file your income tax return.
