VALENCIA FOUNDATION STAFF MEMBER AWARDED
CERTIFIED FUND RAISING EXECUTIVE (CFRE) DESIGNATION

Orlando, FL – CFRE International has named Donna Marino, Valencia Foundation’s donor stewardship manager, a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). Marino joins over 5,400 professionals around the world who hold the CFRE designation and has met a series of standards set by CFRE International which include tenure in the profession, education, demonstrated fundraising achievement and a commitment of service to Valencia Foundation and Valencia Community College. CFRE candidates must pass an exam which tests the knowledge, skills and abilities required of a fundraising executive.

“The CFRE process was developed as a way to identify for the public and employers those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills and commitment to perform fundraising duties in an effective, conscientious, ethical and professional manner,” states Susan Davies Goepp, CFRE, chair of CFRE International. “Achievement of the Certified Fund Raising Executive credential demonstrates the level of commitment on the part of Donna to herself and the profession as a whole.”

CFRE recipients are awarded certification for a three-year period. In order to maintain certification status, members must continue to demonstrate ongoing fundraising employment, fundraising results and continue with their professional education.

CFRE International is an independent organization whose sole mission is dedicated to the certification of fundraising executives by setting standards of philanthropy.

Valencia Foundation provides the margin of excellence for which Valencia Community College has long been known. The foundation is a separate, not-for-profit, IRS-approved 501(c)3 corporation chartered in 1974 with the objective of financially providing for the educational needs of students that cannot be met through state or federal assistance. Valencia Foundation’s mission is to enhance learning, workforce training and economic development in Central Florida through the support of scholarships, teaching chairs, programs and buildings for Valencia Community College.
