I want to help you get certified as a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE). 

Hi, I'm Rachel.

This is a photo of me! I'm Rachel M. Reis, MPA, certified fundraising executive.

I've been in non-profit fundraising since I graduated from college in December 2011. In April 2021, I took the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) exam and passed. You can read my press release here. 


The process cost me approximately $1,000.


I can earn back that money. But it bothers me because I believe that cost burden makes that certification (and its ultimate earning potential) less attainable to those who are more than capable of passing the exam but are prohibited by cost. 

So - I created Philanthropy Study Key to provide high-quality CFRE study guides at a more affordable price than what is currently out there. 

Philanthropy Study Key wants you

to pay less to study for the CFRE & focus on doing more good.
