Fundraisers have until 15 April to submit their applications to sit the CFRE Credential exam during the next 2018 test window.


The test window runs from 15 April to 15 June, and the exam can be taken at hundreds of testing sites across Europe. The Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential is a comprehensive assessment of fundraising knowledge and the only globally recognised accreditation for professional fundraisers. It has been taken by fundraisers across Europe including Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia and the UK.


Following this test window, there will be two more opportunities to take the exam in 2018: from 15 July to 15 September, and again from 1 October to 30 November.


Last year, CFRE International announced that its Certified Fund Raising Executive certification had received accreditation under the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard for personnel certification programmes. The accreditation is recognised internationally for ensuring the consistency and integrity of certification bodies and credentials. Accreditation by ANSI means that the CFRE credential’s global significance is recognised by other worldwide accrediting bodies.
