Scholarship And Mentorship Committee

The Mentorship and Scholarship Committee runs both the Mentorship and Scholarship Programs for the AFP Vancouver Chapter. In the mentorship program, the volunteer committee works to match experienced fundraising professionals as mentors with less experienced fundraisers as mentees for a one-year partnership. As part of the program we offer support to the pairs and at least two professional development events to participants, an intake session and a June roundtable event.
