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:

  • Build your confidence
  • Help clarify the goals you are pursuing
  • Help you develop to your full potential
  • Offer counsel on the basis of shared confidential information
  • Provide new knowledge
  • 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.

2020-2021 Program

The recently launched 2019-2020 Mentoring Program has led to several new pairings. The call for candidates is open. You have until Friday November 6 to apply. We encourage you to learn more about the program and contact us if you wish to become a mentor or mentee.
