Mentor Program

The AFP-MHV Mentoring Program
The AFP Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter Mentoring Program offers a unique opportunity for both new and seasoned fundraisers to learn from each other, share skills, and develop new connections. 
This 9-month program runs from September to June and is open to all AFP-MHV members in all areas of fundraising, including but not limited to: annual giving, capital campaigns, event planning, grant writing, donor communications, board development, and more! 
During the program, mentors and mentees will connect informally at least once a month to share challenges and offer advice. There will also be opportunities throughout the year to gather in person, in coordination with other AFP events. 

Profile of a Mentee...
Are you new to the field of nonprofit fundraising? Do you have a new role and responsibilities? Do you have questions about where to start? Do you want to develop your skills by sharing your challenges with an experienced partner in the field?

Profile of a Mentor... 
Are you an experienced fundraiser? Do you have a specific expertise in an area that you would like to share with others? Do you want to help guide others and make the fundraising profession stronger?

How to Apply:
While the program formally begins in September, applications may be submitted at any time and mentees will be matched to mentors if available. The online application is available here.
