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.

2023 Program

The call for candidate is now open. You have until Friday November 4 to apply.

The 2023 Mentoring Program will be starting on January 1st, 2023, for one (1) year (renewable upon request).
