How We Do It
We meet our nonprofit clients’ needs by being accessible and by offering savvy, sensible and warm-hearted financial advice. Our pragmatic and experienced team provides solutions that help nonprofits meet their regulatory obligations and move toward their goals while keeping their limited resources focused on fulfilling their mission.
Use the mandatory, public federal information return to tell those who use it about your organization’s successes and accomplishments, while staying compliant with your reporting obligations.
We understand the obstacles that can lead to institutional inertia. We can help facilitate goal focused meetings to ensure engagement and ownership in the direction of the organization.
How We're Helping Our Nonprofit Clients
Presentation of Financial Statements: We help organizations properly classify and record contributions, expenses, and liquidity under the new financial statement presentation rules.
Internal Controls: Whether your job functions overlap because your organization is lean on staff or you are growing out of your office space, it’s important to review your internal control processes periodically to mitigate opportunities for fraud, human error, and noncompliance.
Lease Standards: Nonprofits that lease their operating spaces will need to understand and make appropriate changes before the implementation date of FASB’s (ASU) 2016-02, an accounting standards update intended to to increase transparency around leases.. We help nonprofits implement and maintain compliance with the new leasing standard.
Gift Acceptance Policies: A gift acceptance policy is a great way to gracefully manage your donors’ expectations and decline gifts that may prove to be more than your organization can handle. We help organizations create and manage policies that optimize their gifts and donations.
