The Mentoring/CFRE Committee pairs members in need of coaching or support in a certain area with another member that has a high level of experience in that same area (e.g., starting a development program, planned giving, major gifts, social media, etc.). This committee also pairs members interested in obtaining their CFRE certification with another member that is already certified to help them through the process.
