I know the importance of mentorship first hand. I have had valuable mentors in the past and currently serve as a mentor for the Association Of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) at both the global and local levels. Then, when I was elected to the AFP-NYC board of directors in January 2020, I was tasked with chairing their Mentorship Program. I could not have been more excited.

There’s a reason why the Young Professionals Advisory Committee (YPAC) at the Ms. Foundation for Women works—we have good taste, we have ideas, we’re inclusive and we have energy to mobilize.


For-profit sales and marketing teams and non-profit fundraisers have strikingly similar tasks, yet they often think of themselves as worlds apart. Whether you’re offering a product, a service, or a charitable mission, many of the fundamentals cross over.
