Bethesda Lutheran Communities Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

Bethesda Lutheran Communities Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

WATERTOWN, WI – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Bethesda Lutheran Communities of Watertown, WI.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to enhance the lives of people with

intellectual and developmental disabilities through services that share the good news of

Jesus Christ,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
