Sharrard, McGee & Co, PA has extensive experience working with not-for-profit organizations across the Triad for over four decades. We understand the unique dynamics in which dedicated individuals and entities contribute to helping a non-profit grow, serve its community and constituents, and focus on its purpose. We work in partnership with executive directors and their boards to support these objectives by providing valuable advice and hands-on financial management services. Each of our Directors have served in leadership positions on boards of community agencies and organizations in our community for many years and has an insiders understanding of the day-to-day operations of a thriving not-for-profit.
Our specialized expertise includes:
Setting Goals and Objectives
Our experience indicates that the most successful not-for-profit organizations are those that set goals and establish long-range plans. We can help develop financial strategies for achieving your objectives.
Budgeting and Financial Reporting
Once your objectives and goals are established we will help with budget preparation to help achieve them, monitor activities, and highlight deviations from planned operations.
Financial reports are extremely important for not-for-profit organizations as they often determine the amount of funding you will obtain. Since funding agencies receive many grant applications each year, a well-prepared financial statement will enhance your ability to receive funds and often provides an advantage over those organizations that have not made this step a priority. We will ensure that your financial statements are comprehensive and accurate, optimizing your opportunity to be selected as the recipient of funding.
Evaluating Internal Controls
We can also help prepare your income tax returns, providing audit, review, and compilation services for your financial statement as appropriate.
Assisting Your Board
Your Board of Directors and staff must work together in collaboration and cooperation to achieve your organization's goals. As an expert third-party consultant, we can present financial information, interpret data, and help evaluable performance in an objective and helpful manner.
