CFRE certification serves as an impartial, third-party endorsement of your knowledge and experience of international standards in philanthropy. It adds to your credibility as a fundraiser and sets you apart from other professionals as a veritable steward of the public trust.
Founded in 2001, CFRE International is an independent 501(c)6 whose sole mission is to certify fundraising professionals who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and commitment to the highest standards of ethical and professional practice in serving the philanthropic sector.
The CFRE certification process consists of three parts: a written application, a written examination, and an agreement to uphold a code of ethics and Accountability Standards. Individuals who wish to maintain their CFRE certification must recertify every three years.
About the Exam
