The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries by establishing and applying Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship to accredited organizations.
ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising, and board governance. The Christ-centered ministries accredited by ECFA include churches, denominations, educational institutions, rescue missions, camps, and many other types of tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. Collectively, these organizations represent over $27 billion in annual revenue.
ECFA accreditation entitles a ministry to use the ECFA seal. The continuing use of the seal depends on the ministry's good faith compliance with all ECFA Standards.
