Why the CFRE? 

CFRE stands for "Certified Fundraising Executive."  Administered by CFRE International, the CFRE credential demonstrates your professional achievement and commitment to the fundraising profession.  This is achieved through mastery of core knowledge and skills required of fundraising professionals with at least three years of experience. 

AFP fully supports the CFRE credential, and is a proud "Participating Organization" along with the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, The Giving Institute, United Way, the Canadian Association of Gift Planners, and numerous other organizations. 

As a participating organization, AFP professional development programming qualifies for CFRE continuing education credit, which is a prerequisite for certification.
