With over three decades’ experience in all aspects of raising funds, Jill Ritchie and the team offer one-on-one mentoring/coaching of fundraising staff. Due to the chronic shortage of qualified, skilled and experienced fundraisers in South Africa and the SADC region, Papillon offers this dedicated and focused service to build the capacity of one or more staff members in NPOs and universities. This service has proven highly successful, with hundreds of people gaining an in-depth understanding of resource mobilisation and their organisations raising substantially more funds as a result.

Many of the region’s leading fundraisers today are Jill’s former mentees.

This service takes between six and twelve months and provides those being coached with constant, dedicated and tailor-made guidance and advice.

Mentoring/coaching does not have to be restricted to one person in an organisation – for the same fee, NPOs, universities, schools and faith-based organisations are encouraged to allocate a few staff members or volunteers to undergo intensive one-on-one mentoring to both improve their own fundraising, writing, research, planning and all other skills vital to successful fundraising as well as benefit the organisation by increasing the funds raised and generated.
