Background

In the winter of 1959, three noted fundraisers met to share a common vision. Benjamin Sklar of Brandeis University, William R Simms of the National Urban League, and Harry Rosen of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, had long considered the need for an association of fundraisers. Their discussions led to the idea of the National Society of Fund Raisers (NSFR). The National Society of Fund Raisers was officially chartered by the state of New York on June 21, 1960. In 1969, the organization became known as the National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE). In 1964, NSFE adopted a Code of Ethic Principles and Standards. In 1981, NSFRE founded its certification program with over 400 members. The first CFREs were conferred, making a huge difference in how the organization was viewed by both its members and the entire philanthropic community. The new program would make a favorable difference in NSFRE's ability to recruit new chapters and members and expand its influence across North America. The new millennium created opportunities for the association to realize its full potential. It would all begin in January 2001 with a new name, the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
