Mentoring Program

One of the many benefits associated with an AFP membership is a robust mentorship program.  Those that have taken advantage of this great opportunity will tell you our Mentorship Program is a very rewarding experience. 

We have a broad range of experience within our membership, so you can be confident you’ll be paired with someone that will compliment your professional development needs.  Our mentors this year were foundation presidents, vice presidents of operations, and directors in a variety of fundraising areas.  We have both the mentees and mentors complete a questionnaire and we match strengths and weaknesses.  We also poll the participants to see who they would like as a mentor if they could pick.  Our participants have had glowing remarks about the program.  I would highly recommend it.

Mentorship classes typically run throughout the entire calendar year and we ask that our participants commit to meeting or communicating at a minimum of once a month.
