John Sheehan, a retired data analyst working remotely as an Encore Fellow at one of the nation’s largest food banks, is making a huge difference for people facing tough times right now.

“John’s mapping work is allowing Second Harvest to quickly assess where we should implement new distribution sites,” says Holly Cohen, the food bank’s manager of client marketing and program evaluation. “With his help, we’ve launched nine large-scale emergency drive-throughs in less than three weeks. It’s unprecedented.”

If your nonprofit needs an experienced professional like John on board, we want to help.

We’ve added new ways that Encore Fellows™ — skilled professionals seeking high-impact, paid engagements at nonprofits — can serve.

Encore Fellows are currently available:

  • for shorter assignments (6 weeks to 3-, 6- or 12-months)
  • virtually or in-person
  • to fill interim positions
  • to plan and implement strategic projects
  • to provide critical expertise in areas including fundraising, strategy development and change management.

Most important, we have a rich pool of talent ready and willing to be placed.  

Nonprofits interested in bringing on virtual fellows will be able to access talent anywhere in the country. Costs for bringing on fellows vary by region and length of assignment.

More flexible fellowships reflecting the changes above are available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New England, Greater New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Boston, and Texas. We may be able to help nonprofits in other parts of the country, too.

No matter where you are, if your organization is interested in bringing on an Encore Fellow, please send me a note at

Stay safe.
