The Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) is the only globally-recognised, accredited certification for fundraising professionals. More than 6,800 fundraising professionals in 25 countries are currently CFREs.
The recipients of the scholarship, which funds the US$700 CFRE initial application fee for each recipient, are the winners of the Italian Fundraising Award for the last three years:
– Giovanna Bonora, former fundraiser for Bocconi University, Italian Fundraising Award Winner 2019
– Alessandra Delli Poggi, head of partnerships and new business for Cancer Research Italy, Italian Fundraising Award Winner 2018
– Roger Bergonzoli, director at Fondazione Santa Rita da Cascia, Italian Fundraising Award Winner 2017
To become a CFRE, fundraisers must meet requirements in education and professional practice and performance, in addition to agreeing to abide by the International Statement of Ethical Principles of Fundraising and successfully passing a 200-question exam.
CFRE international president and CEO Eva Aldrich, Ph.D., CAE, (CFRE, 2001-2016), said:
“CFRE International is proud to partner with ASSIF to recognise these three dedicated fundraising professionals. Becoming a CFRE demonstrates an individual’s commitment to confidence, ethics, and professionalism in fundraising. We look forward to working together with ASSIF to grow the network of CFREs in Italy.”
