The purpose of the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) Study Group is to provide an overview of the skills, techniques and program components based on fundraising experience at the five-year level.  Participation in the Study Group assists students in learning or reviewing these concepts to prepare for the test.  Content is based on six core knowledge areas related to fundraising and which are included in the CFRE exam.  The Study Group meets monthly, with each of the eight study sessions lasting two hours.  The course is taught by local professionals who have already achieved the CFRE credentials.  Each instructor teaches course theory, provides practical applications and test-taking strategies.
