For over 30 years, religious nonprofit organizations have valued ECFA accreditation. With approximately 1.5 million nonprofits in the U.S., it is important for nonprofits committed to high standards of accountability to stand out in this crowded arena.

ECFA sets some of the highest standards in the nonprofit world in terms of governance, financial management and stewardship. Applications for accreditation are subject to a rigorous review – initially and annually. Periodic onsite reviews confirm compliance with the standards. Nonprofit organizations meeting these high standards are synonymous with credibility and trust.

NonprofitWise subscribers have access to a wealth of information even though they are not accredited. Nearly every nonprofit in America can benefit from ECFA’s accreditation or NonprofitWise subscription.
