THE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM


The Mentorship Program is designed to match a relatively junior fundraiser with someone in the industry who has more experience in an area or areas they would like to learn more about. For the mentee or apprentice, it provides an informal career pathway that addresses the pragmatic side of fundraising, rather than the more formal educational side that the CFRE course of study entails. It is designed for those who wish to acquire a particular expertise, learn about the culture of a different sector, or learn how a skilled professional operates. The mentors enjoy a one-on-one relationship that is professionally relevant and meaningful.
