Membership Benefits

Featured Benefit - Mentorship

  Download the IE 2016 Mentor Application HERE

The AFP Inland Empire’s Mentoring program is designed to help new fund development professionals grow in their skills by being mentored by seasoned fund development professionals. Additionally, professionals can also expand their expertise by being mentored in an aspect of fund development they are not an expert in.  

The program pairs mentors with mentees in a 6 month mentoring program. Mentors and mentees are expected to meet at least once per month for one hour. Mentees take the responsibility to ensure the meetings are scheduled and follow through on any commitments made to the mentoring relationship. Additionally, Mentors don’t just tell mentees what or how to do a particular part of fund development, rather they concentrate on helping mentees discover for themselves the best practice necessary for success!

The program start and ends with a mandatory breakfast and 2 surveys over the course of the 6 month partnerships.

If you are interested or have any questions please contact Justin DeMoss at or 205.569.4077.
