Our Not-for-Profit industry group is committed to providing exceptional service and expertise to a community of clients who serve our regions tirelessly each day.
Through integrated service delivery, 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 Practice apart is a commitment to making sure our clients know how to put this information to use. Through assurance, tax, advisory and technology consulting services (including not-for-profit fund accounting software), we provide valuable insight to not-for-profit organizations of all sizes and their boards. We understand the challenges of not-for-profit funding and business environments, and we are committed to helping each unique organization achieve its mission.
