Eight Days of Hope Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

TUPELO, MS – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Eight Days of Hope of Tupelo, MS.

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

Eight Days of Hope joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to bring volunteers to a location affected by a natural disaster and assist homeowners in rebuilding and repairing their homes damaged as a result of the disaster,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2006, Eight Days of Hope’s (www.eightdaysofhope.com) purpose is to bring hope to those in need of physical comfort, physical rebuilding, and spiritual relief and encouragement.
