I joined UniversalGiving in January 2019 as a Salesforce Administrator Intern and its been a great journey . I got guidance at each and every step. Thanks UniversalGiving for everything.
Thankful for my volunteer experience! Always glad to work with nonprofits with such global purpose as UniversalGiving! Wonderful team.
I first got involved with UniversalGiving as a volunteer, then officially joined the global team as staff. UniversalGiving is a special organization that follows a true social enterprise model, offering both a free public website and CSR services to top corporations.
UniversalGiving offers volunteer opportunities in various business units and attracts top talent. The team is comprised of compassionate, talented, and driven individuals, who all believe in the mission and vision of this organization. The CEO and Founder is extremely passionate about the cause, and her passion radiates across the organization. UniversalGiving also provides excellent opportunities for professional growth, while valuing work-life balance. I strongly recommend this organization to anyone looking to make a positive impact and to become a part of an international team of dedicated volunteers and staff.
Great company to work with! The CEO treats her employees like family and very motivational. Employees are so driven and dedicated to reaching their mission which is to help "To connect people to quality giving and volunteer opportunities worldwide." Pamela Hawley, the CEO at UniversalGiving is the definition of a leader. She is committed, caring, inspirational and motivational --- she'll give the positive vibe in the workplace. :) Thank you Pamela and UniversalGiving!
One of the absolute BEST and TRUSTED global nonprofit platforms!
I have followed the work of UniversalGiving with keen interest since 2004 when I met the CEO at a training workshop. I have greatly admired the consistency, dedication and ethical values that I have come to appreciate as its hallmark. Most importantly, I have been inspired by the tireless orientation to learning with which the personnel pursue their responsibility. I wish I'd clone them or distill their approach to help influence other players in the non-profit sector.
For the past three years, I have served on the NGO Advisor team, where our NGO staff outreaches to NGOs. This is where we identify outstanding local leaders on the ground — NGOS that many people don’t know about — and help raise awareness about them. Many of these constitute unsung heroes whose mission, vision, objectives, strategies and actions amount to lifelines for some of the most vulnerable. Given the accomplishments of such entities, they deserve close attention and robust support. UniversalGiving uniquely finds them and supports them. It’s an honor to be a part of this sincere and rigorous mission.
Part of what distinguishes UniversalGiving is that 100% of contributions that it receives GOES TO THE NGO PARTNERS IT SUPPORTS. UniversalGiving DOES NOT TAKE ANY CUT. IT ALL GOES TO THE IDENTIFIED TOP NGOS ON THEIR PLATFORM.
Notwithstanding this uncommon discipline, UniversalGivings performance record speaks eloquently for itself and it has built a great community of staffers whose socialization on the job raise the bar on the efficiency and effectiveness of nonprofit operation. It is most humbling to be part of this enriching journey so far and I am very excited about our signature commitment to keep striving to augment our donors return on investment for a better future.
Non-profit organizations has become one of the cornerstones in helping and supporting families and children to overcome the obstacles that may be otherwise be difficult for them to overcome
As a former NGO Services intern, I am proud to have spent my summer working at UniversalGiving. The company’s model creatively addresses community development, giving it the ability to engage in several different approaches to philanthropy. Not only did this holistic model expose me to the wealth of approaches that exist, but it also instructed me on the best practices of NGO operations. During our frequent meetings, the interns participated in an ongoing discussion about how to our jobs better. Additionally, our CEO regularly kept us up to date on the organization’s direction and progress. Throughout my time there, I was constantly learning about my role as an intern and a change maker. The office was full of incredibly supportive and good-willed individuals who really believe in the organization's mission and who want to see you succeed. Pamela, the CEO, is one of the most kind-hearted people I've ever met and really made the effort to be available and present in the office.
At first I struggled to appreciate the value of the work I was assigned to do. Much of it was computer-based and didn’t initially resonate with my original expectation of community giving. Our leadership, however, went to great lengths to emphasize the importance of our work to the organization and challenged us to adopt a more positive mindset when we found ourselves in a lull. It was a difficult ask but I am glad that they were there to help me overcome my own obstacles.
The only thing I would advise them to improve is the way they advertise available positions at the company. Any veteran knows that NGO work is not exactly glamorous. But as it focuses less on salary and prestige and more on its mission and its people, UniversalGiving indeed offers an authentic and fulfilling working experience for anyone looking to make a difference.
Working at UniversalGiving has been a great experience. The team is very passionate and dedicated. Wonderful people. The company is very innovative in the way that it approaches the nonprofit model and I believe UniversalGiving can serve as an example for many nonprofits/social enterprises to come.
UniversalGiving provides great value to those interested in making the world a better place. Simply put, not all NGOs are effective and efficient. By vetting NGOs from all over the world, UniversalGiving makes it easy to feel confident that the NGO you're supporting--with your money, volunteer hours, or both--is relieving suffering.
Working with the team at Universal Giving is inspiring and rewarding. I especially appreciate the focus on the end donation beneficiary as well as the employees. Every day brings new challenges which this team manages with professionalism, cause dedication and team spirit rarely seen. As it continues to scale and adopt more NGOs, Universal Giving is becoming featured in Forbes, CSM and recognized as the integral part of the donors community. The opportunities in the non-profit space are enormous! The creative approach to problem solution and new ideation practices with which new issues are tackled is something the team is proud of. I'd recommend working at Universal Giving to my colleagues and friends.
I love work with UniversalGiving. Every one here is super nice. I have learned a lot as I start my design career here. Super grateful for the opportunity and good experience.
I had a great experience as an intern at UnviersalGIving. The staff is always motivated behind a common purpose to make positive change in the world, and as an intern, I felt as if I was a real part of that. I valued the experiences I got there that aren't typical of all internships; I was entrusted with real responsibilities and always kept in the loop with people of different departments. I think the takeaway from an interaction with UniversalGiving is passion: everybody there has it, and if you have it when you come onto the team, it is noticed, nurtured, and utilized. It is in that way that organizations like UniversalGiving can make the world a better place.
UniversalGiving attracts energetic and dedicated staff. The CEO's drive inspires everyone to give their best. The organization is very efficient, and offers great services to corporate clients and individuals. Its website is easy to navigate, offers a wide range of volunteer and gift choices, and 100% of donations go directly to projects. Volunteers and staff gain great opportunity to improve their professional skills and grow within the organization. The CEO is very supportive of staff development over the long-term, even beyond time spent with the organization (I have now known her for 7 years). Staff is passionate, diverse, friendly and supportive. I've personally experienced the results of this organization by working with my peers as and learning how we can most effectively serve businesses' philanthropic interests.
Initially, I timidly came into my Marketing internship at UG with no prior experience in the realm of marketing or social media and did not know what to expect. In the course of the past couple of months, however, I have not only learned about my professional and personal strengths and skillset through the work I have been doing, but have also been given the tools to take advantage of these as I move forward. This summer, I was able to partake in engaging activities and projects such as analyzing social media/marketing trends, learning how to utilize project management tools efficiently, outreaching to organizations and establishing mutually beneficial and strategic partnerships. UniversalGiving prides itself in its positive work culture and team environment; everyday, the values and missions of UniversalGiving were so apparent in all of the work we did together, and individually. Working with the Marketing Team on a daily basis as well as being able to collaborate with the CEO, Pamela Hawley, who also took the time out of her busy days to guide me through my internship kept my work invigorating, challenging and meaningful, and I absolutely loved bonding with the entire UG team. I feel truly privileged and grateful to have had such an amazing internship experience at UniversalGiving and I look forward to continuing my work in spreading UG's mission of creating a world where volunteering and giving are a natural part of everyday life!
An innovative nonprofit involved in both corporate and nonprofit services, UniversalGiving is not afraid to breach the gaps between fields. Committed to the spirit of giving and international social responsibility, UG balances excellence and service. As an intern, I was happy to have the privilege of completing projects for the wonderful leader and CEO Pamela Hawley; her energy, confidence, kindness, and diligence is contagious. As a student seeking a career in social justice, UG was a wonderful place to explore the CSR, nonprofit, and corporate philanthropy sectors. I'm happy to have been surrounded by like-minded people passionate about social issues and service.
I was so delighted to be an intern and to be a part of team at Universal Giving. It felt so inspiring and happy when ı first walked in and met the team. They have been super helping. I loved working in there!!!
This organization is so amazing and inspiring. Every team member shows pure dedication towards helping people around the world. Additionally, the team is very diverse and includes people from around the world. Everything the organization does is targeted to making it more well known in order to help more people.
