Whether you are starting out in the profession or are transitioning into fundraising, the Long Island Mentoring Program demonstrates a commitment to our members to provide value-added services to their professional development for both the Mentor and Mentee.  The following outlines the commitment required from both Mentors and Mentees.  If you would like more information about this program, please contact AFPLI Board Member Regina Cialone at mentoringafpli@gmail.com.    

PROGRAM GOALS: In advancing philanthropy through education, training and advocacy, the Long Island Chapter aspires to the following:

  • To promote collegial relationships between seasoned professionals and Mentees.
  • To assist fundraising professionals in developing a network for professional guidance and creative fundraising.
  • To strengthen the Mentees’ skills through identification and focus on specific areas of practice.
  • To offer an adaptable, responsive and accountable program.
  • To promote fun through shared experience and practice.


  • Commit to the role of Mentor or Mentee for 3 or 6 months. (If you both agree to any type of extension of your pairing, that is solely at your discretion and upon mutual agreement.)
  • Conduct a meeting once a month.  Ideally, these meetings should be face-to-face and last about an hour.  Occasionally, due to schedule demands, meetings might occur over the phone, or via Zoom or video call.  Please do not fulfill the mentoring participation via email. Requests for and scheduling of the meetings are the responsibility of the Mentee.
  • Help the AFPLI Mentorship Chair support the program by completing an evaluation form at the end of the program.


  • Provide guidance, wisdom and support to your Mentee that accelerates their learning process.
  • Help your Mentee set targets and support them in achieving those targets.
  • Support the Mentee in meeting their specific needs in their development as a fundraising professional.


  • Identify specific areas of focus to work on with your Mentor to achieve personal growth in the profession.
  • Be respectful of all meeting dates and times scheduled.
  • Prepare questions and work for review in advance of meetings to make the most of the time.
