The Encore Fellowships Network® began with a pilot program of 10 Fellows in 2009 in California's Silicon Valley, supported by the founding sponsors, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation and HP. Five years later, there are 250 Encore Fellows in 2014 alone.
Following tremendous success and national interest across the United States, Encore.org launched The Encore Fellowships Network. The Encore Fellowships Network makes it as easy as possible for independent organizations to start, sponsor or operate effective Encore Fellowships programs in their community or organization.
Fellowship opportunities are now available in programs in Arizona, California, New York, Oregon, New Mexico, Massachusetts, Washington, and Washington D.C. – all members of a collaborative network.
The programs have been supported by a wide range of corporate, foundation and individual supporters and the participating nonprofits. Strategic expansion support has come from the Packard Foundation, Intel Corporation, the May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust, the California HealthCare Foundation, Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, HP, and the Robin Hood Foundation.
The network of affiliate programs continues to expand across the US, with growing global interest and recognition in the Stanford Social Innovation Review Winter 2013 issue and selection as a Finalist for the 2013 Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence.
