Limited funding, inconsistent revenues, proper treatment of donations, the potential for fraud…
There’s a lot keeping you up at night when it comes to your nonprofit’s finances.

Throw in the pressures of fulfilling your mission—the reason you exist in the first place—and no wonder you’re losing sleep.
You need help. REAL help. Experienced, knowledgeable help with nonprofit accounting, grant requirements, proper financial reporting and all those things keeping you from counting your Zs.
So rest easy—we got this.

Got a question about what we do? Check out or FAQ—the answer might be here!
What kind of software do you work with?
We currently support QuickBooks, Sage Intacct and Abila MIP.
Do you work with clients remotely?
Absolutely! We serve clients throughout Florida and the United States, and we’d be pretty tired if we went to each and every one. Whether you're across the street or across the country, we can help your nonprofit.
What are your fees?
Because our services are customized for each client, there’s no one-size-fits-all pricing structure. That said, our minimum fees are $1,000/month for new clients. This rate increases based on the complexity of your accounting, number of bank and credit card accounts, etc. For an accurate estimate of monthly costs for your situation, connect with an advisor to speak more about your specific situation.
Can you help us with our IRS Form 990?
We can! In addition to our outsourced accounting services, we help with a variety of tax concerns and tasks. This includes preparing and filing your Form 990, helping you retain your tax-exempt status and navigating unrelated business income (UBI).
What other nonprofit services do you offer?
You’re probably aware that we perform federal and single audits for nonprofit clients. However, we also provide consulting services and solutions in human resources, IT/cybersecurity, data analytics, transition planning and so much more. And we’re a great resource for nonprofit board training!
Do you present financial statements to boards?
Yes, we do! Boards have a fiduciary duty for the nonprofits they serve. They need to understand how to read and comprehend financials so they can assist in wise decisions and strategic planning.
Sharing is Caring
Fostering success is about more than client service—check out our free educational resources! We’ve got articles, videos, whitepapers and more, all designed to help your nonprofit thrive.

The head financial official of a nonprofit often wears many hats. We discuss the questions they deal with every day and provide tips being a good financial steward for your organization.
Implementing a Cost Allocation Plan
A solid cost allocation plan is imperative to grant reporting and support for your audit. Unfortunately, many nonprofits don’t have such plan (or if they do, they don’t follow it). This can result in unsatisfactory audit results, noncompliance with grants, and inaccurate information for budgeting and grant narratives.
How Your Form 990 Can Boost Your Nonprofit’s Budget
Your IRS Form 990 isn’t just a form; it’s a window into your nonprofit’s operations. It demonstrates compliance with IRS regulations and informs the public about your programs, expenditures and compensation. This important information allows you to tell your financial story to current and potential donors — and strengthen your case for funding.
