About the Program

Executive Certificate in Religious Fundraising (ECRF)

The purpose of the Executive Certificate in Religious Fundraising (ECRF) is simple - to provide clergy with expertise in fundraising principles and practices and to train development personnel who serve faith-based organizations. There is no intentional fundraising training program that focuses exclusively on the needs, challenges and opportunities of people serving religious congregations. ECRF offers a balanced exploration of congregational cultures, generosity and the fundamentals of fundraising.

The ECRF program introduces faith-based fundraisers to additional and advanced training resources, addressing the continuing education needs of clergy and other leaders who aspire to make a difference. This new opportunity is intended to strengthen pastoral leadership in resource development. Participants will learn core fundraising principles and explore the rituals and practices that foster generosity, with the educational and theological rigor that addresses the needs of faith leaders.
