Plan to Take Part in the Upcoming CFRE Review Course

The course provides an overview of the development function for fundraising professionals who would like to improve their development skills, learn to raise money more efficiently or build upon their current development skills.  It is designed for fundraising professionals at the five-year or above level of experience who may be preparing for the CFRE Certification Exam.  However, the course is also applicable to other mid-level practitioners.

The course consists of nine modules (see below)
·         Module I:  Why Philanthropy? An Overview of Fundraising &
          Its Concepts
·         Module II:  Current & Prospective Donor Research
·         Module III: Marketing and Communications for Fundraising &
·         Module IV:  Developing a Comprehensive Solicitation
·         Module V:  Building and Sustaining Relationships
·         Module VI: Securing the Gift
·         Module VII:  Volunteer Involvement
·         Module VIII:  Management
·         Module IX:  Accountability

The CFRE Review Course is presented through lecture, case studies, and the encouragement of participant dialogue.  Participants in the course will earn 13.75 professional development points towards the CFRE application.

Participation in the AFP CFRE Review Course may assist you in learning or reviewing concepts covered on the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) examination as detailed on the Test Content Outline provided by CFRE International. However, the AFP CFRE Review Course is not designed specifically as a prep course for the exam.  It is designed to provide a review of concepts one should know at the five-year experience level. 

AFP highly recommends that the review course be just one of the resources you use in preparing to take the CFRE exam.  Your study should also include reading books that appear on the CFRE Resource Reading List.
