Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) Renewal

As a development professional, I’m genuinely curious about how all of the parts of an entrepreneurial, ethical, and effective fundraising program work together to strategically advance the mission of an organization. I’m also interested in learning as much as I can about how to connect with philangthropic individuals and institutions. For these reasons and more, I've renewed my recognition as a Certified Fund Raising Executive, CFRE

CFRE certification confirms my knowledge of the highest standards of professional competence and ethical practice in serving the philanthropic sector. It’s also a public statement to donors and colleagues that I care about fundraising as a profession and that I’m personally inspired to uphold its integrity.

My initial certification three years ago in 2013 required my passage of a written examination, in addition to a professional panel review of my continuing education, years of experience, fundraising performance, and service learning as a volunteer. CFRE is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, NCCA.

I’m thankful for the many new colleagues I now have in my network as a result, too! Working in the field of philanthropy and in the voluntary sector is truly rewarding work.

Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE)

As a nonprofit professional, I do my best to learn about how to be an effective fundraiser beyond my own role managing a team that works with families, corporations, foundations, and government agencies.

I’m genuinely curious about other areas of my field and how all of the parts of an entrepreneurial, ethical, and effective fundraising program come together to strategically advance the mission of an organization.

I’m also interested in learning as much as I can about how to connect with donors, individually and institutionally. Today, I gained recognition as a Certified Fund Raising Executive, CFRE.

CFRE certification confirms my knowledge of the highest standards of professional competence and ethical practice in serving the philanthropic sector. It’s also a public statement to donors and colleagues that I care about fundraising as a profession and that I’m personally inspired to uphold its integrity.

The certification requires passage of the exam, in addition to a professional panel review of my continuing education, years of experience, fundraising performance, and service as a volunteer. CFRE is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, NCCA.

Last October, I participated in a two-day CFRE Prep Course with the Association of Fundraising ProfessionalsCalifornia Capital Chapter. At the Sierra Healthcare Foundation in Sacramento, I studied each module with the highest caliber of experienced faculty.

I’m thankful for the many new colleagues I now have in my network as a result, too! Working in the field of philanthropy and in the voluntary sector is truly its own reward.
