About FUSE

FUSE Corps is a national nonprofit that enables local government to more effectively address the most pressing challenges facing urban communities. In pursuit of this mission, FUSE runs an executive-level fellowship program in civic innovation that is focused on accelerating cross-sector collaboration and community-based problem solving. FUSE partners with city and county leaders to identify key strategic challenges and then recruits entrepreneurial professionals from the private sector who spend a year working in local government to address those challenges. FUSE fellows are uniquely positioned to achieve transformative impact across issue areas such as education, health, social services, economic development, public safety, and the environment.


Since FUSE was founded eight years ago, this unique program has grown quickly in response to mounting demand and has placed more than 160 projects in 22 communities across the country. We currently have more than 60 executive fellowships in communities throughout California (East Palo Alto, Fremont, Fresno, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Francisco, San José) and across the country (Cleveland, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, St. Paul, Washington, D.C., and Wichita). The response from prospective fellows has been equally robust, as FUSE accepts only 3% of applicants from among private-sector executives with an average of 20 years professional experience who are seeking a permanent career shift to serve their communities through this high-impact program. Over the coming years, FUSE plans to continue to expand toward placing 100 fellows annually across 25 cities.
