Become a Mentor/Mentee

Whether you’re new to the field, hoping to advance to the next level, or thinking “I wish I knew that when I was starting out,” the mentor/mentee experience is both enjoyable and constructive. Kristina Lentz, Pine Street Inn’s Director of Capital & Leadership Giving, had this to say of her mentee experience:

Kristina Lentz Pine Street Inn “The opportunity to have a thought partner was invaluable at a time when we were relaunching our planned giving program. Beyond the great programming sessions at PGGNE, I had a mentor whom I could call when we received some difficult gift questions which provided me with a great sense of security and peace of mind.”
