What We Do

Consulting & Advisory

How do I know if I need a Consultant?

  • Do you wonder if your accounting software is right for your organization and is being used effectively?
  • Are your finance efforts driven by urgency and the most basic requirements?
  • Do you wonder if your business model works financially?
  • Did you face a tough audit and were left with questions?
  • Are you facing chronic turnover in your finance office?
  • Do you think your operations could be more efficient?
  • Do you dread budget time?

If your answer to any of these is “yes,” you’re in the same boat as many of the nonprofit leaders who have reached out to BDO FMA and benefited from our deep knowledge of nonprofit finance.

Work with BDO FMA: 

Our Consulting & Advisory team is made up of nonprofit professionals with experience on the front lines of nonprofit management across subsectors, budget sizes, and roles.  

We help maximize the effectiveness of your decision-making by providing practical guidance and tools to address your challenges. Our team collaborates to address a broad range of nonprofit finance, operations, and human resource needs.

Our Approach: 

Our approach to consulting aims to meet you where you are.  We know that nonprofit professionals are passionate about their mission, experts in their organization, and committed to getting the most value out of every dollar entrusted to them.

Our consultants are trained to be active listeners first, knowing there are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions. We value our role as “the calm voice in the room” during times of transition, challenge, or disagreement about how to best use your resources to meet your mission.
