Promise686 Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

February 20, 2018

Promise686 Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

BERKELEY LAKE, GA – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Promise686 of Berkeley, GA.

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

Promise686 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 equip churches and families in meeting the needs of orphans and foster children,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2009, Promise686 (www.promise686.org) provides financial assistance, ministry development, community support, and education to church communities all in an effort to fulfill the promise that “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68:6). Their simple vision is a family for every child. If every church raises up and supports at least one foster family, there will then be more than enough families prepared to meet the ongoing need.
