AFP AZ Chapter Congratulates Member on Becoming a CFRE!

Becoming a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) is one of the highest levels of certification a fundraising professional can achieve. Fundraising professionals must demonstrate their ability to raise funds in the sector, participate in 80 hours of continuing education over the previous five years and pass a 200-question exam in order to be designated a CFRE.We are proud to recognize Rebecca Zandarski from the Phoenix Zoo for her accomplishment of becoming a CFRE during the first 2018 CFRE testing window.

We congratulate her on a job well done! April 15 is the next deadline to submit your CFRE application. 

More information about becoming a CFRE is available at

AFP Greater Arizona Speaker’s Bureau

2018 is an exciting year for your local AFP Chapter! We know that we have a resource beyond compare in our membership. Whether you consider yourself “experienced,” “senior,” or “seasoned,” you have so much to offer! You are invited to add your name and expertise to our new AFP Greater Arizona Chapter Speaker’s Bureau.

For as long as I have been a member of an AFP chapter, there has been the challenge of how to serve professionals who, like you, have been in the field for more than 10 years. Historically, hosting educational luncheons with a relevant topic has not worked, because most of you have “been there, done that.”

AFP Greater Arizona Chapter is exploring ways to keep you engaged with your colleagues, with AFP, and with those professionals who are newer to this honorable work we do. I believe it is more than coincidence that you, this incredible group of professionals, can also be part of the 5 pillars of AFP International’s Strategic Plan. They are:

  1. Promote inclusion and expand influence
  2. Lead social change
  3. Advance advocacy, policy, and ethics
  4. Provide relevant quality education
  5. Strengthen AFP capacities and connectivity

You are invited to share your area of expertise with us, whether it is fund development, leadership, or advocacy.
