INN a CFRE Approved Provider of Continuing Education in Fundraising

The Institute for Nonprofit News, the backbone organization of a growing network of 300 nonprofit newsrooms, has been approved as a provider for Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) accredited courses in fundraising best practices. These courses can include webinars, workshops, conferences, online courses and other programs with content that covers subject areas featured in the CFRE certification exam.

As a CFRE approved provider, INN submits our fundraising programs to CFRE International for review to verify that the programs meet CFRE International’s continuing education standards. Already, sessions for INN’s News Giving Roadmap have been pre-approved for Continuing Education Points on the CFRE application for both Initial Certification and Recertification.
