Love the atmosphere here! I volunteered UG for about 3 months when I was having grad school in SF. Everybody is friendly, and works hard and passionately on whatever they are doing. Working environment is also very comfortable here. So sad I am leaving UG because I am finishing grad school and will leave SF soon, but I believe I will be back some day if I have chance!

I've been drawn to nonprofit work since an early age. Now that I've reached the point where I actually decided to pursue it professionally through my career, I'm so glad to have started here at UniversalGiving. The way UniversalGiving sustains itself through CSR management in order to offer its primary services free to all users is one of the most innovative things I've heard about. I knew I wanted to be part of it since I first found UniversalGiving 2 years ago while job searching. I am extremely excited to be part of such a top-performing nonprofit and can't wait to see what these next three months will be like!

This is my first week interning for UniversalGiving. So far, everyone has been really nice and welcoming. I look forward to being a marketing intern for the duration of the summer. I was drawn to UniversalGiving because of their vision: to "Create a World Where Giving and Volunteering Are a Natural Part of Everyday Life." The minute I saw that, I knew I wanted to work for UniversalGiving! I also admire that 100% of each donation goes directly to the cause. I had never heard of such an innovative concept before.

Sometimes just the thought of addressing all of the world's issues can be incredibly daunting, but UniversalGiving takes a giant step towards addressing a multitude of international problems. Working with corporations and big donors to secure funding while also providing free services to enthusiastic volunteers and NGOs is a fantastic model for a nonprofit to be successful. Being apart of such a strong team makes it an honor and a privilege to be apart of the UniversalGiving team.

What drew me to UniversalGiving is the thoughtful and meaningful impact they have set out to make in the world. Often times, volunteer opportunities (whether abroad or domestic) are difficult to organize independently, when I feel that they should be more accessible to anyone who wants to donate his/her time. I also recognize that there are many volunteer-matching services that are offered through the internet; however, UniversalGiving is unique in the sense that not only is the website easy to navigate, but only volunteer programs that have been thoroughly researched are posted. The high quality of each volunteer opportunity is a defining characteristic of UniversalGiving, and speaks volumes about their commitment to better serving our global community.

UniversalGiving is the highest quality organization in providing global volunteer and charitable giving opportunities to everyone. In my experience working with the team, everyone has been extremely focused on furthering the philanthropic mission set by the amazing Founder and CEO Pamela Hawley. Under her leadership, the team has not only reached people in all corners of the world but from the highest and lowest economic standings as well.

Not only did I learn about managing and partnering with non-governmental organizations around the world, but the support and passion of the rest of the UG team propelled me to realize a plethora of opportunities for both my life and career. I loved coming into the Hub to work with the NGO team and will always be a huge advocate for this innovative and motivated organization's model and vision.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning about 501(c)3 financial obligations and was opened up to the abundant and dynamic world of the non-profit sector around the world.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

require or highly recommend internships to be on more long term basis. If I wasn't moving back to Boston, I would love to continue working with UniversalGiving. I have grown so much in the last four months from my work with UniversalGiving, I wish I could continue to stay and give back.

What a great experience with UniversalGiving! The office culture here is truly wonderful; every team member is incredibly nice, and are always wiling to drop whatever he or she is doing and help you out. Each team member works incredibly hard, is passionate, is driven, is talented on so many different levels.

All of this definitely translates into the organization itself; the company is very focused on providing quality volunteering and donating projects from all over the world. It is always up-to-date with the latest crisis and news circulating around the globe.

I have learned so much during my three months here at UniversalGiving and developed skills that will be incredibly useful in my future career endeavors. I am definitely going to keep in touch with UniversalGIving and the rest of the team!

Pamela Hawley, CEO and founder is truly a breath of fresh air. She is so dedicated and enthusiastic when it comes to this organization that you can't help but to jump on board and be equally as enthused. Being involved with UniversalGiving is such a rewarding experience and I know that the work I put in will help change lives not only in near by communities but internationally as well.

I first heard about of Universal Giving through a friend. What inspired me to join UniversalGiving, is that they make donating easy, transparent and customizable. In addition to that, 100% of each and every donation goes directly to the charity or organization. Their values and work have influenced me to increase my own philanthropic efforts and I have personally used their website to donate to charities in India.
