Guiding the not-for-profits that strengthen communities

Mission-driven by design, not-for-profit organizations face the ongoing challenge of pursuing a set of defined objectives—while maintaining a constant focus on sustainability. The BerryDunn team of professionals serves a range of not-for-profit organizations including, but not limited to, educational institutions, foundations, behavioral health organizations, community action programs, conservation organizations, and social services agencies. We provide the vital strategic, financial, and operational support necessary to help NFPs fulfill their missions.

With a team of CPAs dedicated to not-for-profit clients, we understand and embrace the unique challenges faced by social service providers and foundations—and recognize the vital importance of putting the mission first. As consultants to not-for-profit organizations, we provide:

  • Reporting and compliance experience with diverse funding sources. Our team brings a clear understanding of not-for-profit funding, in-depth knowledge of complex compliance requirements, and the industry-specific knowledge necessary for accurate, complete financial reporting.
  • Knowledge of current and emerging issues. As subject matter experts, we apply knowledge in not-for-profit accounting, audit, compliance, and taxation so you can be confident you are on the right track.
  • Deep, industry-specific knowledge. As consultants to not-for-profits of all sizes throughout the US, our team has a clear understanding of industry best practices. That knowledge informs our work—and enhances your performance.
  • Industry benchmarking. We maintain and regularly update our database of key not-for-profit financial indicators. Using that data, we compile and report updates each year, providing not-for-profit clients with clear benchmarks for peer comparison and continuous, targeted improvement.

"Our partnership with BerryDunn began in 2014. After many years with the same auditing firm I was apprehensive changing firms until I met Sarah Belliveau and Tammy Michaud. Sarah and Tammy met with me to learn my vision for the relationship. Their approach is to educate and work as a team with clients. I like that my opinion matters and we can discuss issues/solutions together. When questions or issues arise the BerryDunn team is always available to guide or participate in a discussion with me. Our partnership has improved my knowledge base and our organization has strengthened its internal controls. I am grateful to all the staff at BerryDunn for their professionalism, dedication and knowledge."
