You’d be forgiven for thinking that this post’s title looks like we stuttered. CCCC (sometimes referred to as the 4C’s) stands for the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. They help charities (including churches) to develop strong financial practices. And as laws change, especially concerning taxes, CCCC ensures that churches and para-church organisations are informed of the changes, and what they mean.
We are pleased to announce that the EFCC has complied with the rigourous standards of certification, which allows us to use their Seal of Accountability.
This is how CCCC defines it:
“The Seal of Accountability indicates that a charity adheres to high standards, is operating with integrity and is certified by the Canadian Council of Christian Charities (CCCC).”
You will start to see this seal appearing on a lot of our materials. We’re proud of our capable finance team, headed by Cathy (Manager of Finance), for achieving this for us. This offers you confidence that donations to and through the EFCC and EFCCM are handled with the greatest responsibility, and that as an organisation, we are complying with all of our legal responsibilities.
The 4C’s is also available to help with your church (if you’re reading from within Canada, that is). They have a bunch of resources on their website which you can visit by clicking here, and you can follow the CEO’s insightful blog by clicking here.
