Not-for-Profit Organizations

Axiom CPAs understand that Not-for-Profit (NFPs) organizations face a number of challenges in carrying out their missions. Today’s NFPs operate under intense donor scrutiny and are accountable to oversee agencies as well as those they serve. With difficult economic conditions affecting fundraising and increased competition for grants, your organization needs a clear mission, solid management, visionary leadership and strong resource of networks to succeed. We understand the importance of being partners with our NFP clients. We constantly work with our NFP clients to explore new opportunities to improve their accounting, financial and operational procedures.

Our Approach

Axiom CPAs’ NFP team understand the unique challenges faced by associations and membership organizations, foundations, social service agencies and religious institutions, and we can offer nonprofit accounting and consulting services to address those issues. Our services are designed to support not-for-profit Management Teams, Boards, and Audit Committees. We can assist in developing strategies surrounding revenue sources and operational efficiency, while upholding donor trust in your ability to carry out the organizational mission. This process includes identification and implementation of all the best practices surrounding your accounting and financial systems along with board reporting and oversight.

At Axiom CPAs, our commitment to the not-for-profit sector is reflected not only in the number of clients we serve, but also in our active support of leadership in key NFP organizations throughout New Mexico.  We serve numerous NFP clients, offering a wide range of services to each of our clients. We regularly lend our expertise and leadership to various NFPs.  We can also offer the perspective of service as officers and board members for numerous NFPs.
