PURSUE ITS MISSION
Nonprofit organizations have a higher calling.
Whether that’s a commitment to foster the arts, provide research funding for a healthcare challenge, promote education, or serve a community, The Accountancy can help you reach your goals. Your mission is our mission.
Our team is familiar with nonprofit organizations not only because we have many nonprofit clients, but also because the individuals in our firm serve on many nonprofit boards and have a lifelong commitment to service as volunteers. With this insider view, we are especially aware of the financial, accounting and governance challenges faced by nonprofit management and boards.
If your organization is just starting out, The Accountancy can help with everything from entity formation and application for tax-exempt status to strategic planning, mission statement development and business planning. For more established nonprofits, we also offer essential services including compliance, board development and fundraising advice.

Proper filing of this information form is crucial to a nonprofit’s existence. It not only proves to the IRS that you are running your organization in a manner consistent with the law, it also forms the basis of the GuideStar nonprofit report used by potential donors. Our nonprofit team is very familiar with Form 990 and all that it entails.
Board Development + Governance
Your board can make or break your organization. In addition to helping you identify new board member qualifications and developing their skills, we can also assist with board retreats, board education and fund accounting.
Nonprofits are complicated entities. They are often underfunded and understaffed, and lack formal policies and procedures. The Accountancy can steer your organization in the right direction by advising you on compensation policies, internal controls, D+O liability, fundraising and more topics that support your ability to fulfill your mission.
