Benedict Gets CFRE Designation
CFRE International has named Ruth Benedict as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). Benedict, executive director of the Finger Lakes Health Foundation, joins over 5,200 professionals around the world who hold the CFRE designation.

Individuals granted the CFRE credential have met a series of standards set by CFRE International, which include tenure in the profession, education, demonstrated fund-raising achievement and a commitment to service to not-for-profit organizations. They have also passed a rigorous written examination testing the knowledge, skills and abilities required of a fund-raising executive, and have agreed to uphold accountability standards and the “Donor Bill of Rights.”

“The CFRE credential was created to identify for the public and employers those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills and commitment to perform fund-raising duties in an effective and ethical manner,” states Sharilyn Hale, M.A., CFRE, chair of CFRE International. “As the certification is voluntary, achievement of the CFRE credential demonstrates a high level of commitment on the part of Ruth Benedict to Finger Lakes Health and the fund-raising profession as a whole.”

CFRE recipients are awarded certification for a three-year period. In order to maintain certification status designees must demonstrate ongoing fund-raising employment and fund-raising results, and continue with their professional education. Employers and donors who work with CFREs know they are getting a professional who is committed to the best outcomes for their organization and has the requisite knowledge and skills.

CFRE International is an independent organization dedicated to the certification of fund-raising executives by setting standards in philanthropic practice. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and led by a small professional staff, CFRE International consistently meets the highest standards for certification excellence and is itself accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies.

The Finger Lakes Foundation, a member of Finger Lakes Health, is guided by a board of business and civic leaders. It provides support for the following entities: Geneva General Hospital, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, Living Centers at Geneva – North and South, The Homestead, Huntington Living Center and also hospital-owned primary care practices including Dundee Family Health Center, Clyde Family Health Center, and Seneca Family Health Center.
