We understand your challenges.
We recognize that, when it comes to day-to-day accounting, grant compliance and cost allocations, non-profit organizations face unique challenges. ARI has three decades of experience working with non-profit organizations like yours. Our accounting professionals are well versed in the complex reporting requirements, rapidly changing grant environment, and day-to-day challenges that affect non-profit organizations.
Benefit from a team of experienced accounting professionals.
With ARI, you get an entire team of accounting professionals designed to meet your agency’s specific needs – not just one individual. We are always available to answer questions and address any issues that arise. Not only do we serve as your accounting department, we become valued members of your management team, helping you make important financial decisions.
Each month, we will formally close your books and review your agency’s results. If needed, we will also present the results to your board of directors. We will also work closely with both your development staff and grants manager to ensure all aspects of revenue are reported correctly, so grant deadlines are never missed.
