Mentoring is about harnessing the philanthropic sector’s skills to benefit the next generation of fundraising leaders!

To improve our services to members, we implemented a free mentoring scheme. We developed a new way of supporting you as you seek professional skills by allowing you to be supported by a mentor: an experienced professional who conforms to our code of ethics.

The mentor aims to develop excellence standards to make you a better philanthropy professional. He or she has a number of different objectives:

  1. Build your confidence
  2. Help clarify the goals you are pursuing
  3. Help you develop to your full potential
  4. Offer counsel on the basis of shared confidential information
  5. Provide new knowledge
  6. Expand your network

The mentor’s main role is not to find the answer to your questions, but to prompt you to think differently and evolve in a new and better direction. His or her actions are concerned with both your social skills and your well-being.
