The AFP CFRE Refresher Course offers development professionals an opportunity to review the main components of a complete fundraising program. The AFP Las Vegas, Nevada Chapter is hosting the class October 9-10, 2020 (changed from September 25-26), as a virtual course, with 8 hours each day of instruction.

Registration fee: These are tough times for everyone, as we face economic hardships, natural disasters, and a global pandemic. We have therefore decided to reduce the price of the course by $100. For AFP members, the cost is $290 (reduced from $390). For non-AFP members, the cost is $390 (reduced from $490).

In addition, we are offering four AFP CFRE Refresher Course scholarships of $195 each. AFP members and non-members equally, from anywhere in the world, are eligible for two of these scholarships from a generous donor. The other two scholarships are for AFP Las Vegas Chapter members only, and are in memory of fundraising pioneer William Freyd, who died recently.

The AFP CFRE Refresher Course is an intensive program intended to provide an overview of the six knowledge domains of the CFRE exam. The course is not presented in a lecture format; rather, it is a combination of a high-level review, self-exploration of knowledge and peer exchange of best practices – all of which are facilitated by knowledgeable fundraising practitioners using a caselet approach with components based on fundraising experience at the five-year level. Full participation in the AFP CFRE Refresher Course is applicable for 16 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.

Areas covered include:

  1. Current and Prospective Donor Research
  2. Securing the Gift
  3. Relationship Building
  4. Volunteer Involvement
  5. Leadership and Management
  6. Ethics, Accountability and Professionalism

Participants receive:

  • Participant manual
  • Approximately 16 hours of facilitated, interactive learning
  • A certificate of completion at the end of the course

Registration fee: $290 AFP members/ $390 non-members
