100Kin10 has joined forces with the Encore Fellowships Network to fuel the 100Kin10 movement by adding capacity to member organizations in the areas of marketing and communications, strategic planning, data analysis, program design and management, performance management, and talent management. These Fellowships offer a pathway for seasoned professionals and executives to bring their functional expertise and experience to 100Kin10 partners.
What are Encore Fellowships?
Encore Fellowships are structured assignments that match experienced, skilled professionals with social-purpose organizations. Fellows take on roles which leverage their experience to deliver significant impact to their host organizations. During the fellowship (1,000 hours over 6-12 months), fellows complete a high impact project, earn a stipend, and develop a network of contacts for the future.
What do Encore Fellows do in 100Kin10 partner organizations?
Although the typical Encore Fellow is new to the nonprofit sector, a wide range of roles in STEM-focused organizations can leverage the Fellow's skills and experience so they can make high-impact contributions almost immediately. Many fellows draw upon their own STEM-specific expertise transferred from relevant deep career experience and functional management. High-potential Encore Fellow roles include:
- Marketing/communications, brand management, messaging and public relations
- Information technology, most aspects of hardware, software and cloud computing technology planning, implementation and maintenance
- Human resources policies, systems and structures, staff development and coaching
- Financial management, including accounting, business processes, budgeting, forecasting, and cost modeling
- Strategic planning, scaling initiatives, partnerships, deployment and board recruitment
- Operations and performance management planning, coordination and analysis

"Our experience with Encore has been nothing short of transformative. I can’t say enough about what a strategic asset Nancy Diao, our Encore Fellow, has been to our staff in this critical time in our history. Originally, we were seeking a Chief Financial Officer, but in Nancy, we have found so much more."
Laura Zahn, Chief Academic Officer, Breakthrough Collaborative, 2013 Work Host
The economics of 100Kin10 Encore Fellows
Host organizations are responsible for paying the Fellow's stipend ($20-35K) plus a discounted program fee specifically for 100Kin10 partners.
The Return on Investment to an organization hosting an Encore Fellow may be direct and immediate (for projects focused on cost savings or revenue generation) or indirect and longer-term (for strategy work, for example, or for capacity-building investments). Across the network, host organizations typically place a value on the work of their Encore Fellow at two to four times the actual cost of the fellowship.
