Webinar: Demystifying the CFRE Credential

Wednesday, February 8, 2023
2 - 3 pm ET / 11 am - 12 pm PT

Have you thought about becoming a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) but aren’t sure where to get started or if it’s right for you?  This session will walk you through everything you need to know to about the credential. 

Whether you haven’t yet started your CFRE application or have one in progress, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of how the process works: its benefits, eligibility requirements, completing the application, exam overview, formulating your study plan, taking the exam, an example test question, and recertification. 

Remember, CFREs in the U.S. earn 5 to 16% more than non-CFREs with comparable experience, according to the 2022 AFP Compensation and Benefits Report. 

If it’s time to level up your career, fundraising knowledge, and earning power, be sure to join us.

This webinar qualifies for 1.0 CFRE points.

The team will outline canceling our annual hospital gala ball due to the pandemic and pivoting to surpass the fundraising total of the previous year’s ball.  Learn how we listened to the event’s largest sponsor to keep the community engaged and focused on reaching our capital campaign goal. The team produced the Sheetz Challenge, which raised $4.1 million against just $60,000 in expenses.

The Brave New World of Crypto-Philanthropy

Wednesday, April 19, 2023, 
2 - 3 pm ET / 11 am - 12 pm PT

With an inception that was mired in mystery, cryptocurrency has grown to become one of the hottest and controversial investment opportunities. Global adoption rates are soaring, and major companies and governments are buying in, but drops in value and the unexpected collapse of FTX in 2022 have raised concerns about long-term viability. With a total market cap of over $2 trillion, cryptocurrency is quickly becoming hard to ignore. Similarly, donations of cryptocurrency are growing at exponential rates. Giving of cryptocurrency grew from $4.2 million to over $69 million in 2021 and was projected to end 2022 over $300 million! The explosive growth and the potential for massive returns may be fueling investor excitement, but what does this trend mean for philanthropy and how can you position your organization to be ready? This session will teach you what cryptocurrecy is, the growth opportunities, and how to position your organization to accept it. You'll also learn how to educate your staff to identify characteristics of potential crypto investors and to feel comfortable discussing cryptocurrecy gifts.
