CFRE International announced recently that Brett L. Woods, Director of the SCC Foundation, has renewed his status as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE).
Woods is among more than 7,200 professionals around the world who hold the CFRE designation.
Individuals granted this credential have met a series of standards set by CFRE International which include tenure in the profession, education, and demonstrated a fundraising achievement. They have also passed a rigorous written examination testing the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a fundraising executive, and have agreed to uphold Accountability Standards and the Donor Bill of Rights.
“The CFRE credential was created to identify for the public and employers those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills, and commitment to perform fundraising duties in an effective and ethical manner,” states CFRE International President and CEO Eva E. Aldrich, Ph.D., CAE, (CFRE 2001-2016). “As the certification is a voluntary achievement, the CFRE certification demonstrates a high level of commitment on the part of Brett L. Woods to the fundraising profession and the donors who are served.”
CFRE recipients are awarded certification for a three-year period. To maintain certification status, certificants must demonstrate on-going fundraising employment and fundraising results and continue with their professional education. Employers and donors who work with CFREs know they are getting a
professional who is committed to the best outcomes for their organization and has the requisite knowledge and skills.
“Brett has done an outstanding job as Director of the SCC Foundation and his willingness to continue his certification as a CFRE is yet another example of his dedication to his profession and service to our community,” said Dr. Don Tomas, President of SCC.
The CFRE certification signifies a confident, ethical fundraising professional. Since 1981, CFRE has set standards for fundraising professionals. As the only globally recognized fundraising certification, CFRE indicates professionalism, confidence, and ethics. It is how today’s fundraiser shows accountability, service, and commitment to making a difference for good. The CFRE certification program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute and is the only accredited certification for fundraising professionals.
As the premier global credential for career fundraisers, the CFRE designation is endorsed and supported by the world’s leading professional and philanthropic associations, including: the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Habitat for Humanity International.
CFRE International congratulates Brett L. Woods for recertifying and continually upholding the key principles of the CFRE designation.
