Our Experience

Non-profit organizations that exist to address the needs of society have a special place at Gray, Gray & Gray. With nearly 80 years of experience, we specialize in providing accounting, tax and business advisory services to non-profit organizations including those who rely on local, state, federal, or private funding.

Our non-profit clients depend on us for timely services, insightful advice, and essential support for their operations. We apply the Power of More by delivering practical, proven advice that can lead to improved financial stability, and ultimately an enhanced ability to fulfill your mission.

Whether your purpose is to provide support for disadvantaged communities, enlighten lives through art and culture, fund medical research, further a cause, or any one of thousands of other worthy goals, you can count on us to provide the support you need to continue your important work.

We have deep experience in the complex accounting and reporting requirements that are unique to non-profits. But, while our main objective is to help you remain accountable to donors, volunteers, government agencies, and program recipients, we don’t stop there.

We view our accounting and advisory work as a strategic gateway to understanding what makes your organization successful, and what is required for future growth. Our team brings the Power of More by working collaboratively with our non-profit clients on everything from financial controls to budgeting, employee benefit audits, and long-term strategic planning.

Client Testimonial

“Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (CureAlz) has benefited greatly from the expertise, guidance and patience of Gray, Gray & Gray’s excellent staff for over ten years. As CureAlz, a 501c nonprofit organization, entered its third year as a small, entrepreneurial organization, it retained Gray, Gray & Gray to provide audited statements of its activities. Since that time, Gray, Gray & Gray has not only provided audit services, but also provided necessary financial guidance and support in helping CureAlz structure its financial operations for maximum effectiveness and transparency.”

“Gray, Gray & Gray has understood the limitations of a small, rapidly growing organization and has helped us transition to a more professionally managed nonprofit with an excellent financial staff of our own which has continued to work smoothly with Gray, Gray & Gray. As CureAlz has grown and become more complex, so, too, has Gray, Gray & Gray’s advice and counsel about relevant matters to help keep our financial management system running with the highest level of integrity and efficiency.”
