The CFRE designates a fundraising professional who is continually learning and staying up-to-date on the latest fundraising developments.

CFREs must recertify every three years to maintain the credential. Recertification does not require an exam.

When it’s time to recertify

It is the CFRE’s responsibility to keep track of the next recertification date. This information is readily accessible inside My CFRE and on the CFRE’s original CFRE certificate.
