Testimonial from Protégé Mary Ellen Williams:
“The AFPCC mentoring program came at the right time for me. I’m a novice in fundraising, and my mentor helped me understand the nuances as well as the mechanics of fundraising. Best of all, it transitioned into a working relationship to advance Foothills Art Center’s development program. It’s a win-win.” 

Testimonial from Mentor Valerie Ross:
“I gained as much value from my mentee as I was able to give her!  What a wonderful program.” 

Testimonial from Mentor Kathie Kramer Ryan:
"What a pleasure it was mentoring Kurtis in the AFP Colorado mentor program. As a 'mentee,' Kurtis had a positive attitude, asked great questions, and was willing to jump in and try new things. It was rewarding to be a part of his successes, plus I learned a lot, too! In the process of coaching Kurtis, I improved my abilities to organize information and explain it clearly. Logistically, AFP did a good job of organizing and supporting the mentors."

Applications are due at close of business on Monday, February 13, 2017.
