Our Not-for-Profit industry group was created to garner the combined insights of professionals from multiple firm disciplines, creating an energized dialogue through our regularly scheduled meetings and seminars. This results in fresh ideas, as well as a comprehensive understanding of issues facing nonprofit organizations today. Schneider Downs understands that not-for-profit organizations, as stewards of charitable assets, are accountable to numerous constituencies: boards of directors or trustees, donors, grantors, regulatory authorities and the public.
Gathering the information required to make informed decisions is only the start of the service we provide. What sets our Not-for-Profit Advisory Practice apart is a commitment to making sure our clients know how to put this information to use. We provide assurance, tax, advisory and technology consulting services (including not-for-profit fund accounting software) to large and small nonprofits and their boards. We understand the challenges of not-for-profit funding and business environments, and are committed to assisting each unique organization in achieving its mission and sustaining public support.
We advise a range of not-for-profits including, but not limited to:
- Higher Education
- Private Foundations
- Human and Social Service Organizations
- Religious and Community Organizations
