Types of Charitable Giving

There are many worthy ministries to support within the Body of Christ. Like many people, you may be overwhelmed by all the needs in the world. Wanting to do your part to help, you may also wonder where to begin giving of your time, talents and financial resources.

At ECFA, it is our goal to assist donors in making wise giving decisions. While we do not tell you which ministry to support, the resources listed below may provide you with helpful tools to facilitate your decision-making process.

ECFA can be an effective means of confirming God’s direction for the stewardship of resources He has entrusted to you. Ultimately, your support of any organization must be made in response to the Holy Spirit’s leading in your life.

When you give to an ECFA member, you are supporting a church or nonprofit organization you can trust to use the gift to carry out the Great Commission while meeting high standards. ECFA does not compare one member with another. For over 30 years, ECFA has effectively used a pass-fail approach requiring its members to meet all of its standards—all of the time!

  • Charitable Giving Guidelines
    While most donors care more about the reason for giving than they do about the tax implications, the spirit of giving should never be reduced by unexpected tax results.
