Reading List for CFRE Exam

The Cedar Rapids Public Library now has a nearly complete set of the books on the suggested reading list for the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) exam. Fundraisers throughout eastern Iowa can access these books thanks to our contributions to the annual BE the CAUSE campaign. When we give, AFP gives back to our chapter and this year, our chapter board decided to make it possible for everyone to have access to these books, saving members from spending hundreds on them. Thank you forgiving to BE the CAUSE today to make a difference for all of us!
