Statement from ECFA President Dan Busby - Regarding Passing of the Rev. Billy Graham

“I was saddened to learn of the passing of the Rev. Billy Graham, but I feel deep joy knowing he is now experiencing the peace and presence of his Savior for whom he labored so faithfully,” said Dan Busby, ECFA president. “Not only was he one of the most influential religious figures of our age, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to some 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, but his organization played a crucial role in the founding of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, which is proud to still count it as a member today. The legacy he leaves behind is unmatched.”


The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, 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.
