Del Mar Encore Fellows Initiative Seeks New Host Organizations
The Dayton Foundation is offering up to seven area nonprofit organizations the opportunity to work with a Del Mar Encore Fellow, who can tackle a project that needs special skills or experience not currently available within an organization’s existing staff. The deadline to submit a Request for Proposal, located on The Dayton Foundation’s website, is Thursday, May 5, 2022, at 4 p.m.
Del Mar Encore Fellows are highly skilled, recently retired professionals, who bring a deep and broad skillset that can be deployed to work on high priority community and organizational needs. Since 2017, The Dayton Foundation has deployed a dozen older adults into the community to work as Del Mar Encore Fellows on significant community issues. Past Host Organizations have included the Area Agency on Aging, PSA 2; Brunner Literacy Center; Dayton Metro Library; Learn to Earn Dayton; Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging; NCCJ; Preschool Promise; and St. Mary Development Center.
Thanks to the Fellows’ work, inroads have been made in local efforts, including creating volunteer-led Homework Help programs at area library branches; increasing low-income seniors’ access to healthcare through technology; and researching challenges to building a stable home healthcare workforce. Because the Fellows come with a lifetime of experience and skills, they bring a wealth of additional resources to the Host Organizations.
