Financial Planning Ministry Accredited by 

National Financial Accountability Organization

IRVINE, CA – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced on July 16, 2018, the accreditation of Financial Planning Ministry (FPM) of Irvine, CA.

We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to fund ministry by educating families and facilitating generosity through planned giving,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising. Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with the ECFA Standards pertaining to financial accountability, fundraising and board governance.  

Financial Planning Ministry 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 their willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability. 

“FPM has always held and demonstrated the highest standards in ethics based in Christian values. We are pleased to have ECFA affirm our practice of following sound biblical accountability.” Michael Prior, president of FPM.

Founded in 1982, FPM (www.fpm.org) presents seminars on Christian stewardship, encourages stewardship through appropriate estate planning, and assists in the completion of documents. Through their partnerships with over 90 churches and para-church organizations, this unique ministry has served over 25,000 families and developed over $1 billion in charitable gift designations nationwide.
