To provide a mentor to a development professional who needs advice on planned giving, help with technical gift issues or just answers to general questions about development or office issues. Mentoring is also a valuable opportunity for veterans to share their professional experience and knowledge with new gift planners. In the end, both mentor and mentee benefit mutually from the mentoring relationship.
