AFP DC Online Mentor Application
The AFP DC Mentoring Program provides chapter members with one-on-one assistance to enhance their knowledge and skills as development professionals. Participation as a Mentee is available to members of AFP DC who have worked as a full-time paid development professional for at least one year. Participation as a Mentor is available to members of AFP DC with demonstrated expertise in fundraising. CFRE certification is preferred. A person serving as a mentor may apply the time towards the service learning/volunteering portion of the CFRE application/recertification. Participation is contingent upon the identification of an appropriate match. Mentorships take place for one year, with the details of the interaction determined by the Mentor and Mentee. A mentorship typically involves monthly contact. There is no charge for this membership benefit. At the conclusion of the mentorship, both parties are asked to submit an evaluation. The Mentoring Program is not intended to substitute for formal consulting services. AFP DC encourages the hiring of professional counsel for institutional development.
