All of us at The Friendship Club are proud to announce that Executive Director, Jennifer Singer, has successfully received her Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential! This is no easy accomplishment by any means, as demonstrated by the fact that she is only one of three such people with their CFRE credential in all of Nevada County! She received her credential alongside colleague, Sandra Barrington, the Major Gift Director for Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation (SNMHF). Kimberly Parker, Executive Director of SNMHF, has been the only CFRE in the county until these two amazing ladies joined her!
The CFRE credential demonstrates an individual’s mastery of the standards set for experienced fundraising professionals. This rigorous process of certification requires both an application and a written examination to test one’s skills and knowledge in fundraising. According to the credential granting entity, CFRE International, they certify experienced fundraising professionals aspiring to the highest standards of ethics, competence and service to the philanthropic sector. Well done, Jenn! We are lucky to have you as our leader and for the knowledge and skills you contribute to our community!
