CFRE International launches online CFRE practice exam


Alexandria, VA – 2 August 2017 – CFRE International, the internationally accredited leader in certification for fundraising professionals, is pleased to announce the launch of the new CFRE practice exam online. The CFRE practice exam is a study aid to help fundraising professionals prepare, practice, and be poised for success on the CFRE certification exam.

The CFRE practice exam is the first study aid of its kind to be offered by CFRE International. It is structured on an unlimited use subscription model for periods of either 30 or 90 days. Subscribers can take a practice exam of 100 multiple choice questions or smaller mini-quizzes focused on individual fundraising knowledge domains. Practice exam feedback is delivered for each of the six fundraising knowledge domains tested in the CFRE certification exam, allowing the practice exam user to identify weaker areas in their preparation and address them through further reading and study.

The questions used in the CFRE practice exam are similar in style and difficulty to the questions on the CFRE certification exam. This allows fundraising professionals to gain familiarity and confidence with how questions are presented on the CFRE certification exam as well as with the overall level of difficulty they should expect when they take the CFRE certification exam.

“The practice exam is a great tool for people who struggle with traditional tests or haven’t taken a test in years. It will get them comfortable with a question style and degree of difficulty that is similar to what they will encounter on the CFRE certification exam” says Jeff Stanger, Education Resources Manager for CFRE International.

The CFRE practice exam isn’t just a study aid for candidates who have already completed their CFRE application and been approved to take the CFRE certification exam. It also provides fundraising professionals with a readiness measure as they start down the path toward CFRE certification. Those just starting out in fundraising, mid-career individuals who are transitioning into fundraising, and fundraising professionals around the globe whose first language is not English can use the CFRE practice exam as one means of helping gauge their readiness for success on the CFRE certification exam before making the larger commitment of going through the application and exam process.

Thirty-day unlimited use subscriptions to the CFRE practice exam are $59.95, and 90-day subscriptions are offered at $99.95. More information about the CFRE practice exam is available at
