Outsourced Accounting Services for Nonprofit Organizations
Our approach is to work with you to determine how your organization can best benefit from our professional services.
We provide a comprehensive accounting needs assessment and evaluation to make specific recommendations towards improving organization's financial management capacity and financial operations.
Our accounting services include comprehensive bookkeeping, accounting, controller, and CFO services tailored to compliment your organization’s capacity and improve financial operations. We realize that organizations don’t have the resources to have a full accounting staff, so we focus on filling in the accounting staffing gaps.
Annual Audit Approach
FTM does not have the independence problems that traditional CPA firms have as our firm does not perform financial audits. However, we do partner with a select number of CPA firms that also specialize in audits of Nonprofits which we would be pleased to recommend.
We work directly with your auditor to streamline and standardize the audit process. Our clients are ready for the financial audit as we implement a month end and year end close process along developing audit work papers. Our efforts will significantly reduce the amount of time necessary to complete the annual audit and improve closing procedures.
Better Use of Nonprofit Accounting Systems
Our firm focuses on continuous improvements of an organization’s accounting system. This results in more accurate and timely financial information. One of our primary focuses is on assisting your organization to better use their accounting systems. An accounting system will improve your organization’s efficiency and effectiveness, but does not eliminate the manual business processes needed. We will offer suggestions to improve the manual and/or business processes and procedures to improve your operating efficiency and effectiveness.

Affordable Rates to fit our Clients Budget
We work exclusively with nonprofit organizations, so we know how sensitive our clients are to minimizing accounting fees.
