Ready to prove your fundraising knowledge? Start the process to become Blackbaud certified in Fundraising. The recommended steps to achieve product-specific certification is to complete the series of courses in the Fundraising Learning Path, and then take the Organizational Best Practices - Fundraising Exam.

If you have previously taken the Fundraising courses, or feel you have the necessary product skills and knowledge, you may proceed to the exam. Students who pass with an 80% score or better are Fundraising certified. Fundraising certification is a great milestone for every professional. To proceed to the exam, visit the Organizational Best Practices Course Catalog page, and under the FUNDRAISING header at the right-hand side of the page, click GET CERTIFIED.

Fundraising Exam recommended courses are listed under the Fundraising Learning Path on BlackbaudU Campus.
  • Fundraising - Impact
  • Fundraising - Case Statements
  • Fundraising - Major Giving
  • Fundraising - Donor Retention
Bonus: All recommended courses for the Organizational Best Practices Fundraising Certification Exam are included in all Blackbaud product Learn More and Learn Everything training subscriptions!

When you achieve accreditation, you join a savvy community of professionals who are Blackbaud experts, and you attain credentials recognized as the industry standard. Blackbaud Certification validates your credentials, enhances your resume, and helps advance your career.

When you pass your certification exam, you’ll receive an email from Blackbaud with a link to download the certification seal to share on social media pages, and a small digital icon to use on your business cards, resume, and email signature. You can even promote your Fundraising certification status on your LinkedIn and Blackbaud Community profiles!

No Expiration
Every certification identifies the year it was achieved. There is no expiration on a certification, but the year gives context to when the title was achieved. We encourage students to periodically renew certification in order to reflect changes in social good trends.

No Course Requirement
We want you to pass your certification examination and become Blackbaud Certified®; we therefore recommend specific courses be taken before attempting certification. However, if you feel you possess skills and knowledge strong enough to pass an exam, we encourage you to take the exam without taking the recommended courses.
