Review for CHURCH WORLD SERVICE INC, Elkhart, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former Treasurer of this organization, I have been consistently impressed with the thoroughness of Church World Service's processes around financial accountability. External observers, including our auditing teams, have always held up the quality of CWS' internal staff in the financial realm. There is an intentionality about using funds efficiently and always in a manner that reflects the goals of donors.

I often have occasion to speak to grassroots donors as well as to institutional stakeholders, and I can honestly say that I have never had any reservations about presenting CWS as a preferred choice among organizations working to end hunger and poverty in the global arena.
