Philanthropy & Impact Internship (GC)

Americans give more than $400 billion a year to nonprofit organizations. While the amount we give is important, how we give also matters.

Giving Compass is a one-stop shop for individual donors to learn about issues, get involved, and give to organizations. We believe real change comes from supporting efforts that center equity and effectiveness and address root causes.

Since our launch in 2017, we’ve built a massive content library, developed innovative technology solutions, and partnered with some of the best in the nonprofit and philanthropy sectors. And not to brag, but our team is pretty awesome too.

We work hard, move fast, and have fun. We also show up to make a difference in the world. Join us and help Giving Compass amp up charitable giving in America.
