Why get my CFRE?

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne is excited to share the next training in the Paul Clarke Leadership Series: Why get my CFRE?

Fundraising is hard. Learning about the best practices and having the tools of the trade ready at your fingertips certainly helps! Earning your Certification in Fundraising Management (CFRM) took you to the next level. Now, secure your professional credibility and grow your confidence by becoming a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). This globally-recognized credential demonstrates a commitment to continuous education, fundraising as a profession, and ethical best practices.

This CFRM-only experience helps to demystify the process of the application and the test. Discussion includes why this credential matters, segments of the material covered, tips for test success, networking with colleagues from the 2018 and 2019 CFRM cohorts, and more!
