An Important Way to Share Your Talents for Social Good!

13 06 2019

Hi Everyone,

I’ve heard from so many incredibly talented professionals that although they’ve dedicated their careers to doing great work for wonderful companies, they feel something is missing.

They want their work to have more intrinsic value — to make a positive difference in the world in a more direct way.

You can do just that through Encore!

I want to share this important organization with our KIT List community. Please also pass this on to friends and colleagues!

This is an excellent opportunity for mid- to late-career professionals looking to contribute their skills to the social impact sector of non-profits and government organizations.

There are Encore Fellowships that match seasoned professionals with high-impact, paid assignments.

Encore Fellowships provide a match to an organization needing your talent.

Fellows provide capacity-building expertise to non-profits to strengthen their organizations.

Some of the Many Benefits:

  • Explore the social impact sector, learn how to transfer your skills to a new career path. 
  • Earn a paid stipend of $25,000 for 1,000 hours of work, typically part-time for a year.
  • Receive education, establish new contacts and create a personal network, and join a cohort of peers.

 

Close to 60% of Encore Fellows continue in their host organization full- or part-time, 8% continued with consulting within the social sector, with another 8% serving on a board after their fellowship ends.

Since 2009, thousands of Encore Fellows have provided over 2 million hours of service, at a fraction of their market value, contributing the equivalent of more than $200 million to not-for-profit organizations in over 50 metropolitan areas.

A Few Examples of Experts Needed

The Silicon Valley region has some of the following needs from host organizations. New positions are constantly added and skills in IT, operations, finance, marketing and HR are all needed, so be sure to check their website!

  • A CFO-level professional to work with a CEO of a large, youth-serving organization on presenting the right financial data in meaningful ways to stakeholders.
  • A seasoned marketing professional for an education organization.
  • An IT executive to work with a large community foundation on new systems to implement for a transaction processing environment.
  • A director-level finance professional to work on analyzing the profits and losses of services and products from a large community foundation.
  • Someone to create a business model for a non-profit focused on media and community access from existing products and services.
  • A finance/operations professional to develop and manage a streamlined process for internal and external grant reporting; and best use Salesforce to manage donors, grant reporting, and operational effectiveness for a housing organization.

The Process:

Fellow candidates apply to the program. Once they have applied, they will be contacted to discuss their interests and fit. Matching can take several weeks to months, depending on applicant skills, interests and geographical preferences and host needs. If you’re interested, learn more and apply here!

If you want to put your deep expertise and talents to work for a great cause, consider an Encore Fellowship!

Warmly,

Sue
