Engage Hope received accreditation from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability in 2020.
Founded 40 years ago by Billy Graham and other evangelical leaders, ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) has grown from a visionary and faithful group of 150 charter members to over 2,400 leading churches and ministries across the United States today.
ECFA enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries through its annual accreditation of organizations based on Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship, drawn from Scripture.
ECFA serves as a financial accountability partner to ministries who voluntarily seek accreditation and continue to faithfully demonstrate their commitment to ECFA’s high standards. The standards are set at an appropriately high level to provide the essential guardrails for financial integrity in churches and ministries of all sizes. While admittedly the standards do not address every potential issue or challenge an organization may encounter, they have stood the test of time in helping thousands of churches and ministries enhance trust and become better stewards of their God-given resources.
