Founded in 2001, CFRE International is an independent 501(c)6 whose sole mission is dedicated to setting standards in philanthropy through a valid and reliable certification process. Between 1981 and 1996, two leading professional associations had their own separate certification programs, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy offered the CAHP and the Association of Fundraising Professionals, formerly NSFRE, offered the CFRE. In 1997 for the betterment of the entire profession, those two organisations merged their programs to form the independent CFRE Professional Certification Board, now CFRE International. Following the creation of CFRE International, other leading philanthropic associations joined in support of the program. In 2009 the CFRE program was granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies. NCCA, the accrediting arm of the National Organization for Competency Assurance grants accreditation to a select group of organizations that demonstrate compliance with the NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. The accreditation process includes a comprehensive and independent expert analysis of the certification program against the highest industry standards.

Mission: As stewards of the public trust, Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) International certifies fundraising professionals who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and commitment to the highest standards of ethical and professional practice in serving the philanthropic sector. CFRE International fulfills this mission by establishing and administering a voluntary certification process based on current and valid standards that measure competency in the practice of philanthropic fundraising. In furtherance of its mission, CFRE International promotes voluntary certification, in dialogue with government and other bodies globally, as the preferred alternative to licensure and/or government regulation.

Interesting...I went to see what your exam fees were....Excessive...then I looked at your President and CEO's annual salary and compensation (990-2017 - $211,851)...now I can see why your exam fees are high...

Hello, is there any way to post a job to your org without paying the fee? We're a small nonprofit looking for a Director of Philanthropy, but spending $300 to put something up for 30 days is not in our budget (we don't have a budget, lol). Could I just put a link on your page? Thank you.
