[b:116ecfc74a]Accountability, independent oversight and financial disclosure are important to me, but I don't see my favorite charities listed with ECFA. What can I do to obtain a greater comfort level when giving to them? [/b:116ecfc74a]
If the factors mentioned above are important to you, but you do not see your favorite organization among ECFA's members, ask them the following suggested questions, and expect a timely, courteous and informative response. ECFA firmly believes that good charities willingly answer tough questions:
Does the organization have a clear and strong commitment to a certain project area?
Is there an independent board that accepts responsibility for the activities of the organization and oversees its operations?
Are the financial records audited annually by certified public accountants?
Are copies of the audited financial statements provided to anyone who requests them?
Is information provided to donors about any program that the donors have supported?
How does the organization avoid conflicts of interest?
What are its guidelines and standards for fund-raising?
Is there a review procedure to assure compliance with fund-raising standards and guidelines?

By supporting "headship," denigrating "committees" and calling other churches "dead" you have made your sentiments clear.
You have no meaningful accountabitly to boards or "committees" elected democratically by your church members and you don't believe churches should have democracy, but rather a form of dictatorship.
You don't disclose your finances as outlined by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
And you attack people when they question you.
