Individuals granted the CFRE credential have met a series of standards set by CFRE International which include tenure in the profession, education, demonstrated fundraising achievement and a commitment to service to not-for-profit organizations. They have also passed a rigorous written examination testing the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a fundraising executive, and have agreed to uphold Accountability Standards and the Donor Bill of Rights.
“We at the Phi Psi Foundation are very proud that Lee has achieved the CFRE designation. His talent and ethics are of the highest caliber,” states Chief Executive Officer Ben Nicol. “Lee has worked hard to accomplish this recognition; as the designation is a voluntary achievement, the CFRE credential demonstrates a high level of commitment on the part of Lee to himself, the fundraising profession and most importantly the donors and young undergraduates we serve,” added Nicol.
CFRE recipients are awarded certification for a three-year period. In order to maintain certification status, certificants must demonstrate on-going fundraising employment and fundraising results and continue with their professional education.
