Accounting firm for nonprofits

Work with CPAs who are committed to making your job easier and your nonprofit stronger

You wear a lot of hats

Between keeping the board of directors happy and managing a tight budget and shortage of staff, you’ve got your hands full. That’s why you need a CPA who provides dependable service year round, and not just at audit and tax time. Our CPAs are passionate about helping your nonprofit succeed, which is why we offer discounted rates, complimentary consultation hours and a library of free resources.

Private schools

Between the economy, rising costs and changes brought on by the pandemic, private schools face more challenges than ever before. Our private school specialists are here to help your school grow with services that go beyond just audit and tax.

Resources for Private Schools






Health and welfare organizations

We work with nonprofits that serve children and families, animal shelters, workforce and education development organizations and nonprofit healthcare organizations like long term care facilities.







Trade and membership and associations

As you support and grow your membership, you need a CPA who understands membership dues, unrelated business income tax and your tax requirements. We provide audit and tax services, as well as back office accounting support and IT services, to 501(c)3 and 501(c)6 organizations.



Religious organizations

While your religious organization is technically a nonprofit, you are subject to a unique set of accounting rules which affect payroll, allowability, reimbursement of businesses expenses and more. Our Nonprofit Group tackles these issues for churches, synagogues and mission volunteer organizations.





Cultural organizations

We have experience working with cultural organizations like art, science and children’s museums. Our nonprofit specialists have experience tackling the unique financial and operational issues cultural organizations face.






Private foundations

As a foundation, you face unique financial issues. Between making annual distributions and maintaining and growing your asset base, you need a CPA who is experienced in working with foundations like yours.



Demystifying the Audit [eBook]

Audits can be tricky for nonprofits, especially for those who aren't familiar with nonprofit accounting. That's why we created this free eBook for nonprofit leadership teams and boards of directors on how to prepare for a stress-free audit.

A customized suite of services for nonprofits

Whether you need an audit, help managing your endowment, a strategic planning facilitator or help with your nonprofit’s technology, Gross Mendelsohn’s Nonprofit Group can help.
