As a teenager, I knew I wanted to enable children in developing nations to receive the quality of education I enjoy. The question for me was, "Which non-profit do I join out of the thousands of social enterprises?" So began my search for a non-profit that was 100% volunteer-based and made giving easy, transparent, and rewarding. A non-profit that did not passively funnel money but cared about creating long-term personal relationships between sponsors and students. Givology was one of the very few non-profits that met these conditions that I had in mind. Beginning as a development intern, I quickly learned that there was much more to Givology. The team atmosphere at Givology is so incredibly collaborative, and I have met some of the most supportive and amazing individuals here in this organization; even though we are all volunteers and are either in school or are working professionals, our passion for giving is unmatched. Volunteers of all ages are equally welcome to contribute. I knew I wanted a hands-on experience, and few people my age to have the opportunity to run non-profit. Givology truly surpassed all my expectations for a non-profit, and I know I will be involved with this organization far beyond college.
