* organization currently hosting a FAO Schwarz Fellow

The Fellowship has worked with some of the nation’s most innovative and effective social impact organizations in designing Fellowship experiences.​

"Having an FAO Schwarz Fellow on our team has had a greater impact on our work and our community than we ever imagined. Our Fellow has been outstanding and the unique dual focus on direct service and special project work has really moved the needle for us in multiple high priority areas."​
