I have worked with UniversalGiving for over a year now and I can only say that my experience here has been a complete joy. What makes UniversalGiving different is its application of its mission and values into the workplace. The values are not there just to read, but to be actively executed in daily life. The CEO, Pamela Hawley, is very personal and is truly a woman who lives to give. The energy in the office is always upbeat and positive. There has never been a day in which I left the office feeling unhappy!

Working with UniversalGiving has been an amazing experience. The year I have spent with the company has been inspiring and educational. Everyone who works for UniversalGiving is hardworking, dedicated and truly wants to help society. Pamela Hawley is an amazing CEO. She is an inspirational woman, working non stop, giving 110% to everything she does, big or small. One of my favorite times working with the team was a team event Pamela planned to clean up trash in one area of the tenderloin. Everyone on the UniversalGiving team truly works to fulfill our vision to "create a world where giving and volunteering are a natural part of everyday life." I highly recommend UniversalGiving whether you are searching for an organization to donate to or looking for a place to volunteer.

UniversalGiving makes volunteering and donating to causes so easy. They divide up the contents on their website between volunteering and donating. Then you can choose a region (like Latin America) to look for opportunities in. I will be studying abroad in Nicaragua in the fall and UniversalGiving helped me find a bunch of opportunities that I could give my time to in order to get more involved in the community. What is great is all of the donations go to the organization that you choose-nothing goes to UniversalGiving. This is a great organization; I wish more companies today were focused on helping make the world a better place.

The Great!

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

Finding ways to volunteer in Nicaragua through a free and secure site that I knew would help me find what I wanted. I know that this will match me with a volunteer organization that will be safe.

Provide even more opportunities in Latin America! They have a lot, but I would love to do more!

What a great organization! They have a social entrepreneurship model that makes it easier for people to donate internationally, and all of your funds go to the ngo's. The people there are dedicated and warm, there is a positive vibe within the organization.

I joined UniversalGiving for the chance of helping others and learning more about Corporate Social Responsibility. From day one, I knew that this was the perfect, if not best, place for me to start off gaining CSR work experience. Everyone in the office is extremely friendly and seem dedicated to the organization's cause. There is barely any hierarchy as Pamela talks freely with everyone, including what most other companies would call lowly interns such as myself.

In terms of services, I had a hard time deciding whether to apply for a position at UniversalGiving or to volunteer. I have spent a lot of time looking at the different volunteer options UniversalGiving provides and already have a few options lined up for a summer volunteer excursion.

When I found out about UniversalGiving, I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of the organization. As a non-profit that puts volunteers and donors in touch with the causes that they care about, UniversalGiving provides a fully-transparent operating model to ensure that money goes just where it's desired.

The staff are experts in their fields and motivated by a common cause of giving back and helping others to do so as well.

The environment involved with Universal emanates from the CEO's energy, Pamela Hawley, and the spirit of giving itself. Experiencing the organization first as a minor donor I couldn't be more pleased with the caring yet non-intrusive relationship they've kept with me over the years. Their work has inspired many, including myself, to make giving more and more part of their every day lives. In this manner the world and the individual is constantly improving.
