You care for our communities in more ways than we can say. MBAF is fully committed to helping you perpetuate your generosity far into the future. OUR NON-PROFIT EXPERTISE GOES BEYOND TRADITIONAL AUDIT AND TAX SERVICES.

We are dedicated to supporting non-profit organizations. Our services help give back the time, flexibility, and freedom non-profits need to focus on their mission and goals. The success of a non-profit hinges on many factors: sufficient funding, generous donations from individuals and businesses, dedicated volunteers, and quality staff. Just as important is the quality of professional advice that you receive.

MBAF has an entire group specialized in meeting the unique needs of non-profits. Whether your organization has revenues of $250,000, $250 million, or more, we are dedicated to offering the highest level of service throughout the year. We understand that to best serve you, we must understand you. That’s why we’re constantly learning about trends and best practices in the non-profit arena. MBAF spends over 1,000 hours per year in pro-bono services. This not only benefits our neighborhoods, it helps us understand our communities and the array of non-profits that serve us.

We have extensive non-profit experience.

Our professionals have conducted audits for hundreds of non-profits representing a wide range of non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. Many of these 501(c)(3) organizations receive grant funding from local, state and federal agencies. Our expertise includes single audits under OMB Uniform Guidance and the Florida Single Audit Act, in addition to audits of states and local governments.
