New service matches retired execs, nonprofits
Encore Professionals Group, a new consulting service for nonprofits staffed by retired executives and professionals, is looking for project leaders who want to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Founded by Bluffton resident Susan Harper, the group links retirees having specific business, leadership or professional skills with short-term, strategic projects at Lowcountry nonprofit organizations. Volunteers put the program in place and then leave, Harper said. She said projects are designed to have "legacy value for the nonprofit as well as the EPG volunteer who will know that he or she made a difference." Encore Professionals Group projects are pre-contracted with the nonprofit organization. Volunteers select the project that matches their interest and skill set. Details: 773-725-2750;
