Now Accepting Applications for 2018 AFP Mentoring Program!
For Both New and Advanced Professionals

Most of us didn’t grow up dreaming of being fundraisers. Or study fundraising in college. When you ask a fundraising professional how they got into the field, more often than not, you’ll hear some variation of, “Well…I just fell into it!

So, it makes sense that most fundraising professionals learn on the job. With this in mind, 23 years ago, the Greater Arizona Chapter developed the Mentoring Program for professionals new to the field. Now adopted as a model by AFP International, this year-long program helps gives fundraising professionals the foundation they need for a successful career. This program is a good fit for professionals that are newer to the field (1-5 years) – whether a young professional or making a mid-career change!
