Encore Fellowships

Matching experienced professionals with social impact organizations to boost capacity and strengthen teams

About Us

Encore Fellowships match seasoned professionals with social impact organizations to boost nonprofit capacity, build strong diverse teams, and give people seeking encore careers an introduction to the nonprofit sector. Launched in 2009, Encore Fellowships was a program of CoGenerate (formerly Encore.org), an award-winning nonprofit bringing older and younger people together to solve problems, bridge divides and co-create the future.

On January 2, 2024, Encore Fellowships became a program of The Fedcap Group, Inc. This transition provides a great foundation for growth enabling Encore Fellowships to impact more nonprofits while adding to the strong legacy of the program. Encore Fellows® will help nonprofits and their communities realize the power of possible.

To date, more than 2,300 Encore Fellows® have provided over 2 million hours of service to the social sector, contributing the equivalent of $200 million to nonprofit organizations in more than 50 US cities.
