Webster's Dictionary defines Mentor as a wise and trusted teacher, advisor, guide.

The Mentoring Program of the Southwest Florida Chapter of AFP is offered as a benefit of membership to not only enhance our chapter, but also your professional achievement level. The program matches veteran fundraising professionals with AFP members who have at least one year of experience in the development filed. While the program is not intended to replace formal educational opportunities, participants do gain valuable knowledge and skills through a mentoring relationship. We invite your participation in this important program by submitting an application so that the Membership committee can best match Mentors with Mentees according to common interests/needs and skills.
