Mentoring Program


Fall Mentor Partnership Program announced!

With the Spring 2019 mentorship program coming to a close this month, we are happy to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Fall class.

Any AFP-HR member can apply for the five month mentor program, which pairs fundraisers seeking advice with seasoned professionals.  Discussions are completely confidential, providing a safe place for fundraisers to explore their challenges and opportunities.

The 2019 Fall session will run for five months – September through January. We encourage our mentees and mentors to meet regularly to develop a strong relationship to meaningfully explore pressing topics.

Here are the guidelines -

  • Submit an application by August 1, 2019
  • Be open to frank discussions and constructive advice
  • Be committed to maintaining professionalism in the field of fundraising
