CFRE International has named Amy Lord as a Certified Fund Raising Executive
(CFRE). Amy Lord is a philanthropy officer at Jess Parrish Medical Foundation
(JPMF), the fundraising arm of Parrish Medical Center.
“The CFRE credential was created to identify for the public and employers
those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills and commitment to
perform fundraising duties in an effective and ethical manner,”
stated Jim Caldarola, CFRE, immediate past chair of CFRE International.
“As the certification is a voluntary achievement, the CFRE credential
demonstrates a high level of commitment on the part of Amy Lord to herself,
the fundraising profession and the donors who are served,” added
Individuals granted the CFRE credential have met a series of standards
set by CFRE International which include tenure in the profession, education,
demonstrated fundraising achievements and a commitment to service to not-for-profit
organizations. They have also passed a rigorous written examination testing
the knowledge, skills and abilities of a fundraising executive, and have
agreed to uphold Accountability Standards and the Donor Bill of Rights.
Misty Wilson, JPMF director, was awarded the CFRE designation last year.
“We are honored to have two CFREs at the foundation and proud of
the hard work and dedication Amy has provided to our organization for
the past two years,” said Barbara Terhune, JPMF board chair. “Amy
has consistently shown commitment to PMC’s vision of Healing Families—Healing
Communities® and we look forward to her continued contributions.”
