Participation in the Peer Mentoring Program is a AFP Chicago membership benefit. It is one of the most important programs AFP Chicago offers.

This premier program is offered twice a year where seasoned fundraisers who have a minimum of 5 years of development experience are paired with someone with less than 5 years of development experience. Once applications are received, AFP Chicago’s Peer Mentoring Committee carefully matches mentors and protégés based on interests, skills, and location in order to help mentors and protégés get the most out of their match.

WHY SHOULD YOU PARTICIPATE?

Participation in AFP Chicago’s Mentoring Program offers you a chance to:

  • Network with other development professionals
  • Strengthen Chicagoland's philanthropic community
  • Learn new skills and develop existing skills 
  • Help foster the development and growth of fundraising professionals
  • The benefits the program provides were recently valued at $8,000 by a local consulting firm.
