Lisa Johnson, CPA, is a member of the firm’s Nonprofit Group. She works with all kinds of nonprofits, including health and welfare organizations, private schools, foundations, community organizations and associations. She also works with nonprofits that require Single Audits (formerly OMB Circular A-133).
Lisa knows that nonprofits face countless challenges, including increased donor scrutiny, complex regulatory compliance and a poor economy. But Lisa is drawn to nonprofits because of the passion they have for what they do, in spite of the challenges they face. She believes their passion is contagious and feels a sense of pride knowing that her work helps to further their mission.
In conjunction with performing the financial statement audits, Lisa enjoys helping her nonprofit clients strengthen their infrastructure, comply with complex government regulations and understand their financial condition. Lisa earned the American Institute of CPAs’ Not-for-Profit Certification, which is awarded to CPAs who prove their proficiency in nonprofit financial reporting, auditing, governance and tax compliance.
