If you’re at the mid-level of your career and want to progress, then you’ve come to the right place. We offer support and guidance to help you gain your CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive) designation, more advanced educational opportunities, and opportunities to get more involved.

For those who are well established in their career or in senior positions, why not ask us for support in gaining your ACFRE (Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executive) designation? We’re always interested in discussing educational topics that you would find useful. And you can show off your leadership and set an example for those who will follow you by getting involved as a mentor, speaker or with a special project or committee.
