Becoming a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) is an exciting professional achievement that shows you go beyond by leading and committing to a higher standard. The CFRE process measures the individual’s knowledge and skills in best practices in ethical philanthropic fundraising. Obtaining a CFRE is a two-step process that involves an application and a test. The “GET CERTIFIED! Scholarship offered by AFP-Hampton Roads will partially pay for the recipient’s first test to become a CFRE up to $400. Currently, the exam is offered to AFP members for $700.

Candidate must be currently employed by a non-profit and have worked in the development profession for at least five years.

If awarded the scholarship and you cannot sit for the next testing window, you must contact the AFP Scholarship Chair for extension for approval or forfiet the scholarship. Candidate must agree to pay the testing fee, then submit the receipt to process the partial reimbursement of $400 toward the testing fee by AFP-HR.
