Testimonial

I came to UniversalGiving at a time when I was looking for a way to have more meaning with my    work. After years in management consulting, finance, and then home raising two young children, I was ready to give back to the world in a different way. I began as a volunteer in their Returnship program  and four years later, am leading Operations. UniversalGiving is a professional environment that has given me meaning, experience in new realms, and flexibility in my work schedule. I am so proud to be a part of this amazing team that is doing great things in the   world.”

Adriana Rabkin, Former Senior Manager of Operations
