Professionalizing fundraising and helping professionals chart a clear career path is vital to the health of our sector. As nonprofits are under greater scrutiny, it is also essential that fundraising professionals imbue ethics at every turn in their work.

Pursuing the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) certification helps professionals grow their knowledge while reinforcing the critical role of ethics and best practices.
