WGTS 91.9 Granted Accreditation for Financial Accountability
Story by Lisa Krueger
For the third year in a row, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) has recognized and accredited WGTS 91.9 for upholding the highest financial standards. “This is an important honor and meaningful accreditation for WGTS,” says general manager Kevin Krueger. “We make it a priority to be accountable to our donors and uphold the standards of ECFA, which include standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising and board governance. Our donors give so generously, and it is our desire to help them feel invested in the ministry by knowing how their funds are being used to further our work in Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas.”
The accreditation entitles a ministry to use the ECFA logo, so WGTS staff members place the logo on the website and on fundraising letters, allowing donors to feel confident and secure about the nonprofit they are supporting, says Krueger. WGTS 91.9 was the first Seventh-day Adventist organization to apply for accreditation with ECFA–who provides this status to leading Christian organizations–and received their first letter of acceptance in October 2015.
