Whether or not you plan to take the CFRE exam, these best practices will benefit your career.  

Who should attend? The course was developed for intermediate-level fundraising professionals who want a comprehensive overview of fundraising principles. Its content is organized around the CFRE exam topics of: Donor Research, Marketing and Communications, Solicitation, Relationship Building, Securing the Gift, Volunteers, Management, and Accountability.  Participants engage in fundraising problem-solving and network with fundraising peers.

This may include executive directors, vice presidents of development, program managers and special event coordinators for local nonprofits and foundations and staff members of university development offices.
