AFP Golden Gate Chapter Mentorship Program
Program in Brief
Since 1989, the Association of Fundraising Professionals Golden Gate Chapter (formerly NSFRE) has been proud to serve the fundraising community in California's San Francisco Bay Area with its Mentorship Program.
The program provides one-on-one mentoring and training that helps ensure that all participating nonprofit organizations, and especially those that perform with limited staff, have the best professional fundraisers.
Mentors, senior fundraising professionals who volunteer their time, commit a minimum of two hours per month to meet face-to-face with their fellows, though most communicate more frequently by phone, e-mail and fax, to assist their Fellows with specific fundraising, and career development issues.
Participating Fellows represent a wide range of experience, organization type, and budget size: some are Development Directors who work alone in a small office; some are Executive Directors who spend a large amount of time fundraising; and some are individuals who are new to the field of fundraising.
Mentoring programs like this one are one of the best tools we know of to help strengthen and develop the fundraising profession.
We hope you'll join us this year.
