Session Description

The AFP CFRE Review Course offers development professionals an opportunity to review the main components of a complete fundraising program. It is a two-day, intensive program that focuses on the terminology, organization, and structure of a development operation. Topics include:


  • Why Philanthropy? An Overview of Fundraising & Its Concepts
  • Current & Prospective Donor Research
  • Marketing and Communications for Fundraising & Development
  • Developing a Comprehensive Solicitation Program
  • Building and Sustaining Relationships
  • Securing the Gift
  • Volunteer Involvement
  • Management
  • Accountability


The review course is designed for intermediate-level fundraising professionals and provides a complete overview of the development function for those who would like to improve their development skills, learn to raise money more efficiently or build upon their current development skills.

Its nine modules are organized around the CRFE exam domains and will be taught by individuals with CFRE designations. Participants will have an opportunity to learn and to network with fundraising peers.

Each module contains content, questions for discussion, activities and other ideas and suggestions for engaging participants in reviewing the material.

The AFP CFRE Review Course is not designed to be a preparatory course for the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) Examination but instead is a review of the body of knowledge at the five year level which many individuals use in studying for the exam. There is no guarantee that any of the specific content covered in this course will appear as specific items on the CFRE examination. CFRE International does not sponsor or endorse any educational programs, and this course was not developed in conjunction with CFRE International. Register HERE
