Finally got my digital badge from CFRE International, proof that I am a "Certified Fundraising Executive" the only credentialed certification that exists in the nonprofit fundraising field. And recognized worldwide.
Earning this certification tells you that I have significant professional experience, professional development and fundraising success in the field AND that I have read many textbooks and participated in Saturday study groups in order to pass the rigorous CFRE exam.
I often say that "Fundraising is a skill you can learn" because many people are surprised to learn how much theory, psychology, analytics, and methodology there is in the nonprofit fundraising field. It's there for the learning. Or you can hire an expert at Donor Boom and know that you're working with someone who is committed to sharing these techniques so that you have the internal capacity you need to ignite generosity yourself.
