Demonstrate Your Commitment to Professional Growth, Lifelong Learning and Passion for Fundraising and Philanthropy!

Professional certification demonstrates your commitment to professional growth, lifelong learning and passion for fundraising and philanthropy. Certification also signals to your organization, government, the public and others that you employ best professional practices and ethical standards.

AFP supports two important certifications for fundraising professionals:

  • Certified Fund Raising Executive, or CFRE. CFRE used to be managed by AFP, but is now operated by a separate organization: CFRE International.  Learn more about CFRE
  • Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executive, or ACFRE. AFP manages the ACFRE program. Learn more about ACFRE.
