Testimonial "Working with UniversalGiving has given me the chance to participate in critical aspects of business management and partnership facilitation, which are opportunities that would definitely be off-limits to "the intern" at most corporations. The friendly and ultra-supportive executive team here wants their interns to contribute to the main goals and aspirations of UniversalGiving in important ways and helps them to do so, which is what makes working here so rewarding and fun - so fun, in fact, that I will continue to be a part of their team even after leaving the San Francisco office!" --- Emily Stehr, UG Representative at Princeton University, Summer Intern
