Associated with  AFP MB, Manitoba Chapter

Join us on November 4 & 5 and get ready to take the next step in your career. If you plan to write your CFRE in the coming year or want to dive deeper into fundraising concepts, we want you to attend this refresher course.  

The AFP CFRE Refresher Course offers development professionals a new approach that asks them to apply fundraising theory, skills, and techniques within the six knowledge domains of the field. 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 based on a case study approach. 

We also encourage fundraisers to share this course with their leaders (CEO, Board or development committee members), adding tremendous knowledge of fundraising practice to an organization’s operations and governance. 

Six Domains:

1: Current and Prospective Donor Research

2: Securing the Gift

3: Relationship Building 

4: Volunteer Involvement

5: Leadership and Management

6: Ethics and Accountability

Breakfast, Snacks and Lunch Included

2023 Instructors:

  • Bridgette Parker, CFRE, Executive Director Riverview Health Centre
  • Kristine Betker, CFRE, Director of Development Royal Winnipeg Ballet
  • Andrew Kussy, CFRE, Chief Executive Officer, Dream Factory
  • Kirsten Davidson, CFRE, Senior Manager, Fund Development, The Lung Association Manitoba

Participation in the AFP CFRE Refresher Course can assist you in learning or reviewing concepts covered on the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) examination as detailed on the Test Content Outline provided by CFRE International. However, the AFP CFRE Refresher Course is not designed specifically as a prep course for the exam. It is designed to provide a review of concepts one should know at the five-year experience level. AFP highly recommends that this refresher course be just one of the resources you use in preparing to take the CFRE exam. This course is most effective when taken prior to any personal or group study. Your study should also include reading books that appear on the CFRE Resource Reading List (copy of this reading list is provided to participants in the course.)
