The nonprofit sector in the U.S. serves as a major cultural, social and economic force and employs close to 10% of the U.S. workforce.

According to the Urban Institute, the number of nonprofits grew 25% between 2001 and 2011, at a rate of growth that surpasses both the business and government sectors. There are over 30 types of charitable and nonprofit organizations that are categorized under various Internal Revenue Code (IRC) sections, including charitable entities, educational institutions, healthcare and medical research organizations, professional and trade associations, private foundations and political organizations. The majority of nonprofits operating in the U.S. are exempt from tax under the IRC Section 501(c)(3).

We can help you set up and maintain your nonprofit organization’s tax exempt status by handling all the IRS reporting for you. We can also provide a variety of audit and assurance services to your organization.
