Susan L. Abtouche, Vice President of Mission Enhancement at White Horse Village, has recertified as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). Ms. Abtouche joins over 7,200 professionals around the world who hold the CFRE designation.

“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,” states CFRE International President and CEO Eva E. Aldrich, Ph.D., CAE, CFRE. “As the certification is a voluntary achievement, the CFRE certification demonstrates a high level of commitment on the part of Susan Abtouche to the fundraising profession and the donors who are served.”

In her two years at White Horse Village, Ms. Abtouche has worked collaboratively with the Endowment Fund Trustees to create a planned giving program, enhance the donor engagement process and implement a donor database. In late 2020, White Horse Village Endowment Fund was surprised and thrilled to receive a transformational gift of over $500,000 in financial securities from a resident donor.

Individuals granted the CFRE credential have met a series of CFRE International standards, which include tenure in the profession, education, and demonstrated fundraising achievement. They have also passed a rigorous written examination testing the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a fundraising executive and have agreed to uphold Accountability Standards and the Donor Bill of Rights.
