October 11, 2017

CFRE Refresher Course

DeSales University, University Center
8:00 am - 5:00 pm 
Registration and Continental Breakfast:  7:30 am - 8:00 am

The AFP CFRE Refresher Course offers development professionals an opportunity to review the main components of a complete fundraising program. It is a one-day, intensive program intended to provide an overview of the six knowledge domains of the CFRE exam.  The course is not presented in a lecture format; rather, it is a combination of a high-level review, self-exploration of knowledge and peer exchange of best practices – all of which are facilitated by a knowledgeable fundraising practitioner using a caselet approach with components based on fundraising experience at the five-year level

Domains include:
1. Current and Prospective Donor Research
2. Securing the Gift
3. Relationship Building
4. Volunteer Involvement
5. Leadership and Management
6. Ethics, Accountability and Professionalism


AFP Members = $390
Non-Members = $490

Please note: Continental Breakfast will be served. Coffee and water will be provided throughout the day; however, lunch will be on your own. The University Food Court will be open or there are several restaurants in the area.

Participants receive:

  •  Participant manual 
  •  Approximately 8 hours of facilitated, interactive learning
  •  A certificate of completion at the end of the course 
The designation “Certified Fund Raising Executive” (CFRE) is a mark of distinction, providing heightened professional recognition and greater career options and earning potential for fundraising executives.
Full participation in the AFP CFRE Refresher Course is applicable for 8 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.

Participation in the AFP CFRE Refresher Course may assist you in learning or reviewing concepts covered on the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) examination as detailed on the Test Content Outline provided by CFRE International. However, the AFP CFRE Refresher Course is not designed specifically as a prep course for the exam. It is designed to provide a review of concepts one should know at the five-year experience level. 

AFP highly recommends that this refresher course be just one of the resources you use in preparing to take the CFRE exam.  Your study should also include reading books that appear on the CFRE Resource Reading List.
