Focus on what counts

Not-For-Profit

Focused on Your Mission

With so many diverse and important missions, not-for-profit organizations are constantly seeking to balance the high demands for valuable services with the challenges of increased and complex regulatory compliance requirements, along with reduced government and/or public funding. This balancing act requires innovative, and often creative, solutions that will allow you to remain responsive to the needs of the community.

How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

Citrin Cooperman’s dedicated Not-For-Profit Practice forms collaborative partnerships with our clients that go beyond the compliance needs of the organization. The practice team is comprised of professionals who possess the specialized technical skill-sets to successfully address our clients’ accounting and regulatory requirements, and who are also extremely proactive, creative, and strategic thinkers.  We immerse ourselves into the programs of the organization in order to gain unique perspective on the organization and their mission. 

Our experience with not-for-profit organizations of all shapes and sizes has given us insight into best practices, along with the ability to recognize opportunities for improvements that we openly share with our clients. Some challenges may be identifying funding sources, budgetary concerns, effective board governance, asset management, employee benefit/incentive programs, and financing needs. Our Not-For-Profit Practice teams have the diverse skills and experience to be a resource in all of these areas and more. 

With more than 35 years of experience, we are committed to serving the not-for-profit industry and our community. The Citrin Cooperman Cares initiative coordinates charity programs and days of service, bringing the philosophy of giving back into the core values of our firm. Our partners, directors, and managers also serve on a number of boards for not-for-profit organizations in their local communities. It is this passion that allows us to become trusted advisors, continuously working to help our clients’ not-for-profits grow and prosper.
