Accreditation & Affiliations
EU is fully accredited by the Haitian national government and by theÂ Caribbean Evangelical Theological Association,Â one of the five regional members of the International Council of Accrediting Agencies for evangelical theological education. This Council operates under the sponsorship of the Theological Commission of the World Evangelical Fellowship.
Emmaus University has been accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), an accreditation agency that enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries by establishing and applyingÂ Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardshipâ„˘Â to accredited organizations. Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising, and board governance. The Christ-centered ministries accredited by ECFA include churches, denominations, educational institutions, rescue missions, camps, and many other typesÂ of tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. Collectively, these organizations representÂ over $26 billion in annual revenue.
ECFA accreditation entitles a ministry to use the ECFA seal and receive benefits such as enhanced fiscal credibility, recognition by the secular nonprofit community, and affirmation of integrity for donors. The continuing use of the seal depends on the ministryâ€™s good faith compliance with allÂ ECFA Standards.Â These Standards of Responsible Stewardship focus on board governance, financial transparency, integrity in fund-raising, and proper use of charity resources.
