Take pride in the creation of a vibrant community

Decades of focus on unique Not-For-Profit issues

Our Not-for-Profit Group provides audit, tax and advisory services to over 600 clients. The size of the organization varies – with annual budgets that range from $250,000 to in excess of $35 million. We have dedicated personnel and significant resources that focus on developments related to compliance, consulting, accounting, taxation and operational issues. We provide services to not-for-profit organizations in the cultural, educational, grant-making, governmental, healthcare, religious and social services sub-sectors of the not-for-profit industry. We also provide services to a significant number of trusts and foundations.

We field one of the strongest dedicated NFP teams in the region. The firm wide NFP group is staffed with over 25 professionals who have focus areas serving the needs of not-for-profit organizations.

CSH is engaged in the issues that affect our clients, as well as the communities in which we live and work. We emphasize corporate responsibility and giving back to the community as a core value. We encourage and support our staff – at all levels – to engage in volunteer activities. Our efforts are wide-ranging and encompass charitable donations to universities and non-profit organizations, as well as organized volunteer initiatives in each office.

Members of our group serve as lecturers on NFP topics for groups around the region.

Our goal is to be the dominant provider of accounting services to the region’s Not-for-Profit community. We have demonstrated a serious commitment to educating, supporting and leading the not-for-profit community to greater achievements.
