  • Find a project online that you’re passionate about.
  • Choose the venue for your promo: church, Facebook, blogs, website, workplace, etc.

ECFA Guidelines & Donor Bill of Rights

Listed among Encompass's core values is our resolve to "strive for excellence in all we do." This commitment extends to how Encompass conducts business and how the organization raises funds. As a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), Encompass adheres to the following Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship, as well as the ECFA Donor's Bill of Rights.

Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability

Standard #1 - Doctrinal Statement
Every member organization shall subscribe to a written statement of faith clearly affirming its commitment to the evangelical Christian faith and shall conduct its financial and other operations in a manner which reflects those generally accepted biblical truths and practices. What Encompass believes.

Standard #2 - Governance
Every organization shall be governed by a responsible board of not less than five individuals, a majority of whom shall be independent, who shall meet at least semiannually to establish policy and review its accomplishments.

Standard #3 - Financial Oversight
Every organization shall prepare complete and accurate financial statements. The board or a committee consisting of a majority of independent members shall approve the engagement of an independent certified public accountant, review the annual financial statements, and maintain appropriate communication with the independent certified public accountant. The board shall be apprised of any material weaknesses in internal control or other significant risks.

Standard #4 - Use of Resources and Compliance with Laws
Every organization shall exercise the appropriate management and controls necessary to provide reasonable assurance that all of the organization’s operations are carried out and resources are used in a responsible manner and in conformity with applicable laws and regulations, such conformity taking into account biblical mandates.

Standard #5 - Transparency
Every organization shall provide a copy of its current financial statements upon written request and shall provide other disclosures as the law may require. The financial statements required to comply with Standard 3 must be disclosed under this standard.

An organization must provide a report, upon written request, including financial information on any specific project for which it has sought or is seeking gifts.

Standard #6 - Compensation-Setting and Related-Party Transactions
Every organization shall set compensation of its top leader and address related-party transactions in a manner that demonstrates integrity and propriety in conformity with ECFA’s Policy for Excellence in Compensation-Setting and Related-Party Transactions.

Standard #7 - Stewardship of Charitable Gifts

  • 7.1 Truthfulness in Communications
    In securing charitable gifts, all representations of fact, descriptions of the financial condition of the organization, or narratives about events must be current, complete, and accurate. References to past activities or events must be appropriately dated. There must be no material omissions or exaggerations of fact, use of misleading photographs, or any other communication which would tend to create a false impression or misunderstanding.
  • 7.2 Giver Expectations and Intent
    Statements made about the use of gifts by an organization in its charitable gift appeals must be honored. A giver’s intent relates both to what was communicated in the appeal and to any instructions accompanying the gift, if accepted by the organization. Appeals for charitable gifts must not create unrealistic expectations of what a gift will actually accomplish.
  • 7.3 Charitable Gift Communication
    Every organization shall provide givers appropriate and timely gift acknowledgments.
  • 7.4 Acting in the Best Interest of Givers
    When dealing with persons regarding commitments on major gifts, an organization’s representatives must seek to guide and advise givers to adequately consider their broad interests.
    An organization must make every effort to avoid knowingly accepting a gift from, or entering into a contract with, a giver that would place a hardship on the giver or place the giver’s future well-being in jeopardy.
  • 7.5 Percentage Compensation for Securing Charitable Gifts
    An organization may not base compensation of outside stewardship resource consultants or its own staff directly or indirectly on a percentage of charitable contributions raised.
