Assurances
OAA protects the privacy of our donors by not marketing our mailing list (See our
“Privacy Policy” below). OAA also commits to posting its latest IRS 990 report, financial statements, as well as any
attestation letters provided by our auditors, on our website and updating the information annually. Additionally, OAA
requires all board members and employees to abide by a conflict of interest policy that encourages high standards of ethics
and integrity.
Accreditations
OAA is accredited by The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and by Ministry Ventures as tangible
evidence to donors that the ministry adheres to the highest standards of Christian ethics in financial accountability and
reporting. OAA is also accredited by BBB Wise Giving Alliance Accreditation Standards, and by The Independent
Charities of America. Each conducts rigorous evaluations of our organization’s governance, finances, fundraising
practices, website disclosure, and donor privacy.
