Union Gospel Mission Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization

Union Gospel Mission Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

PORTLAND, OR – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Union Gospel Mission of Portland, OR.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.
Union Gospel Mission 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 be compassionate, energetic, and creative in pursuing solutions for those they serve,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1927, Union Gospel Mission’s (http://www.ugmportland.org) passion is to feed the hungry, restore the addict, and love their neighbor.
