UniversalGiving has an inspirational mission and being a part of the organization in helping out can get fun. There is much to learn and get experience in and if you are lucky to be on the Product Development team, you will get a chance to work with a team of highly dedicated individuals who knows how to deliver quality results.

I cannot give it 5-stars for one reason only: the long hours. Expect to work overtime frequently due to heavy task assignments and deadlines given and quite possibly, this could be many 65-70+ hour weeks. You have to be dedicated but if you do, you will gain much skills out of the work you do and as long as your business unit leads are correctly managing the team, you will hopefully not have to worry about the overtime work.

I have enjoyed so much working in this organization for about a month! Our CEO was very enthusiastic, energetic, and kind. I have learnt a lot from her. It was also very nice to meet a lot of people from all over the world who have been very nice to me. I have had such a totally amazing experience!

UniversalGiving is an organization with the utmost dedication to its vision and values. I am pleased to be part of an organization that values integrity in all of its interactions. I started my journey with UniversalGiving this last summer as an intern in their NGO Business Unit, assisting with their Quality Model vetting. This was a valuable experience that resulted in my current employment as an Executive Assistant for the Office of the CEO. Working directly with our gracious CEO, Pamela Hawley, I have grown as a professional in the non profit sector. Pamela provides growth experiences and exceptional support. She is one of the kindest women I have known, with a heart for giving.

UniversalGiving donates 100% of your donation to the opportunity you choose to support. When one gives we want them to be ensured that their donation reaches the people, animals, and ecosystems in need. I believe UniversalGiving is an ideal charitable organization to support.

I have been working at UniversalGiving for the last 2 months and a half and it has been a great learning experience for me. I joined the organization to know more about the non profit world and put together my passion for social impact and my work.
I couldn't ask for more generous people than the ones I work with. Everybody is extremely helpful and friendly. The CEO really passes on her believes and kindness to the team.
