Certification Program

CCCC’s CERTIFICATION PROGRAM FOR CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES:

“We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man” (2 Corinthians 8:20-21 NIV).

A growing number of Canadians are looking for evidence of a charity’s credibility before deciding to donate.

CCCC Certification helps ministries demonstrate:

  • their trustworthiness in a compelling way;
  • financial and organizational integrity;
  • transparency and desire to exceed the minimum requirements for maintaining charitable status;
  • that they are meeting the highest standards.

STANDARDS OF ACCOUNTABILITY:
