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.
