Urban Youth Collaborative Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

SAN DIEGO, CA – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Urban Youth Collaborative of San Diego, CA.

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

Urban Youth Collaborative 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 win students to Christ, connect them to a local church, and mobilize them as change agents who serve their neighborhoods,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2009, Urban Youth Collaborative (www.uyc.org) supports student-led Bible clubs at over 100 public middle and high schools throughout San Diego County.

ServantMatch®, ECFA’s program that matches God’s servants with the stewardship options of ECFA members based on ministry sectors and categories. It is ECFA’s newest online feature that allows you to quickly and easily find giving opportunities.

ECFA, founded in 1979, provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with the ECFA Standards pertaining to financial accountability, fundraising and board governance.  For more information about ECFA, including information about accreditation and a listing of ECFA-accredited members, visit www.ECFA.org or call 1-800-323-9473.
