What is ECFA?

Palm Missionary Ministries, Inc. (PMM, Inc.) has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) since 2001. For over 30 years evangelical organizations have valued ECFA accreditation because of the high standards membership demands. With approximately 1.5 million nonprofits in the U.S., it is important for those committed to high standards of accountability to stand out in this crowded arena. ECFA requires members to operate with 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.
