Encore Fellowship

Put your skills to work.

As an Encore Fellow, you could receive a 6- to 12-month opportunity and a modest stipend to put your skills to work in a nonprofit organization. The Encore Fellow concept was launched in Silicon Valley in 2009 by Civic Ventures. Experience Matters has pioneered the program’s expansion in Maricopa County in association with Encore.org and the Encore Fellowship Network.

We’re looking for highly skilled, experienced professionals ready to transition from primary careers in the for-profit sector and make a significant impact for nonprofit organizations in need of their talent.


How do you know if the Encore Fellow program is right for you?

Encore Fellows deliver a high value-to-cost ratio for work hosts by bringing experienced, affordable talent to a specific assignment matched to the fellow’s skills and interests. Many become role models for other staff members and evolve into executive coaches and mentors within the organization.

The Encore Fellowship Program in Maricopa County, under the umbrella of Experience Matters and Encore.org, is sponsored by the Arizona Community Foundation, BHHS Legacy Foundation, the Bruce T. Halle Family Foundation, the Lodestar Foundation, PetSmart Charities and the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.
