Nonprofit Organizations

As a nonprofit organization, you serve others and make a positive difference in the community. Along with good works, you must manage resources in the light of federal and state oversight and public scrutiny. That’s where we shine. While other accounting firms can perform the basic accounting, we have an extensive history with nonprofit organizations that brings essential knowledge to the table.

We verify that your accounting and reporting requirements are compliant for maintaining your nonprofit status. And, we help you evaluate internal controls to prevent fraud and look for ways to maximize revenue in your operations. With Salmon Sims Thomas, you are assured integrity when under scrutiny by your board, donors or outside interests.

Team members typically serve or have served on committees and boards for numerous charitable groups. In fact, we are often asked to train and educate professionals in accounting for nonprofit organizations. We have a head and a heart to work for your success.
