The CFRE credential 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 original CFRE certificate.
Ensure the primary email address in your My CFRE account is always current. This is the email address where your recertification reminder email will be sent.
