The 2018 Mentor Program
AFP Golden Gate with Northern California Planned Giving Council
AFP Golden Gate's popular Mentor Program has provided one-to-one support for hundreds of professionals, and many a seasoned fundraiser credits a relationship with a mentor as one of the most important steps they took in their career! In 2018, we once again welcome the partnership of NCPGC.
The Mentor Program provides one-to-one support for professionals including fundraisers, executive directors, development staff, board leaders and consultants. Whether you wish to learn more about a specific area of fundraising, are new to, curious about or experienced in the profession, or simply enjoy sharing your expertise with others, you'll find the Mentor Program rewarding.
Activities in the 2018 Program include:
- One-to-one Mentor/Fellow matches through January 2019.
- Three Mentor Program Online Clinics (May-July-September), held Fridays from 9:00-10:00AM.
- Two Mentor Program meetups at the informal Unplugged networking events (March and April).
- NEW! Free of charge registration to AFP Golden Gate's Noon Online Series of 1.5 hour classes on relevant topics with expert presenters. There will be 6 Noon Online classes, held from 12:00-1:30PM, earning 1.5 CFRE Credit each. Mentor Program participants will be given a promo code to enter when registering to auto-receive the $0 charge.
