Please note: There is an updated definition of what the certified fund raising executive credential is that differs to the one shown in the glossary.

Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE): A globally-recognized voluntary credential granted to a fundraising professional who has met standards in education, professional practice (working in a paid fundraising role for 36 months out of the most recent five years), professional performance; agrees to abide by the Donor Bill of Rights; and has successfully passed the CFRE exam. Recertification is required every three years. The CFRE certification is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and administered by CFRE International, an independent nonprofit certifying body.
