Terry Schavone Mentorship Program


The Central Ohio AFP Chapter has a very active mentorship program. The program is an opportunity for our seasoned professional fundraisers to mentor and nourish fundraising professionals who have been in the field for one to five years. Mentees and mentors must be chapter members. There is no charge to participate in the program except that mentees must serve on one of the chapter’s standing committees during their mentorship year.

The program kicks off in January, and the pairings are encouraged to meet at least eight times throughout the year. Each pairing decides its own meeting schedule and agenda of topics to cover through the year.

There is an application process, which commences in late fall preceding the January kick-off. A committee matches the pairings based on skill set and areas of expertise.

Applications are now CLOSED for 2017.   

Deadline to submit applications for 2017 is December 2, 2016.

AFP Mentoring Program Alumni Brown Bag

We have heard time and again from mentees that they wish they could have another year in the program.  We limit mentees to one year but we don’t want to limit learning and support.  We are offering a quarterly brown bag session for those who have been mentors and mentees in the past, and for the former Columbus Foundation Development Fellows.  Mollard Consulting will facilitate the conversation but you choose the topics.  We will send a poll to all who RSVP to find out what’s on your mind and what you would like to discuss.  The first brown bag will be on Friday, February 24 from 11:30-12:30 at the Main Library auditorium.

RSVP to Erin at erin@mollardconsulting.com or 614-484-1600.  


Minimum requirements to participate in the program:
  • Mentees and mentors must be members of Central Ohio AFP.
  • Mentees must be employed as a full-time paid development professional at a nonprofit organization for a minimum of one year.
  • Mentees are expected serve on an AFP committee during their mentoring experience.
  • Mentees and mentors are encouraged to meet at least eight times during the year.
  • Mentors must have a minimum of five years of experience as a full-time development professional.
  • Mentors and mentees must attend the kickoff meeting in January 2017 —date, time, and place TBD.
 
Here are some reflections by those involved in the program:
  • My role as a volunteer mentor has been an amazing experience! I am volunteering to do it again!
  • My mentor and I have been meeting regularly. She's been wonderful. It's been so valuable to have her ideas, feedback, and (most of all) reassurance.
  • I have absolutely loved being a mentee, and I am so grateful for the AFP. (My mentor) and I have continued to meet through the summer, and he has been really helpful just to vet ideas though and talk about issues with.
  • My mentee and I continue to meet monthly and it seems things are going very well in our partnership. My mentee provides positive feedback on our discussions, and any new actions she has integrated into her work.
