Take a Year Off… To Change the World
Have you heard about Fuse Corps?
Some of Fuse Corps participants (Fellows) receive a $90,000 stipend, others are “on loan” from their company. Supported by Fuse Corp’s efforts to educate and connect with influential leaders, participants work on initiatives on a local level that have the potential for national impact.
What I love about this?
- We have a new way to bring together people who are uniquely qualified to make a significant difference in the lives of others;
- Individuals are taking advantage of the opportunity to step back from their careers to do something truly meaningful;
- Organizations are stepping up to support efforts like these by loaning their “stars” to the program;
- Leaders are supporting the program through donation of time, talent and money.
- Lives are being changed.
As Ryan Scott says, “More than just another blip on the corporate philanthropy map, Fuse Corps might well represent the future of community engagement.”
