At BDO, we are providing middle market leaders with insight-driven perspectives and assurance, tax and advisory services, helping companies take business as usual to better than usual. To continue their critical work, nonprofits need to navigate challenges of their own: Budgetary constraints, complex federal funding, compliance, technology, donor stewardship and evolving constituent needs are only some of the hurdles they face. We tailor approaches to help organizations maintain a nonprofit heart and business mindset, so they can improve financial and operational health while expanding their impact.
