Mentoring Program
Share |

The Planned Giving Group of New England (PGGNE) continues to offer this longstanding program aimed to aide entry- to junior-level PGGNE members with their planned giving questions. With PGGNE those new to gift planning have avenues to help achieve an array of knowledge.


**NOTICE** Currently accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Mentoring Program!



The goal of the Mentoring Program is to provide a mentee access to a seasoned gift planning professional colleague who has the skills, knowledge, experience, and resources to assist and provide industry guidance. At the end of the program year, the mentee should have a deeper engagement in the gift planning profession, expanded professional networks in the field, and a stronger sense of direction in their career path.



  • Must be a 2019-2020 PGGNE member
  • Agree to meet with mentor/mentee once per month for 1-hour during mentorship period (Oct 2019 - May 2020)
  • Clearly identify needs and develop specific questions for each meeting
  • Contact their partner and the PGGNE Mentoring Chair if changes affect their ability to work with their mentor/mentee




Also, download/complete the Mentoring Program Agreement.


What is Next?

  • PGGNE will conduct the matching process and notify participants of their mentor/mentee match as soon as practicable.
  • Mentors and mentees are requested to meet for Mentoring Coffee at the PGGNE October 11th monthly meeting.
  • Mentors and mentees are jointly responsible for making initial contact. All mentors should be available for at least three individual meetings with mentees during the year and at least two phone calls. Keep in mind you only get out of the program what you put in. The program is intended to be mutually beneficial.
