With so many diverse and important missions, not-for-profit organizations are constantly seeking to balance the high demands for valuable services with the challenges of increased and complex regulatory compliance requirements, along with reduced government and/or public funding. This balancing act requires innovative, and often creative, solutions that will allow you to remain responsive to the needs of the community. Citrin Cooperman’s dedicated Not-For-Profit Practice forms collaborative partnerships with nonprofit organizations that go beyond the compliance needs of the organization. The practice team is comprised of professionals who possess the specialized technical skill-sets to successfully address new and emerging accounting and regulatory requirements, and who are also extremely proactive, creative, and strategic thinkers. We immerse ourselves into the programs of the organization to gain a unique perspective in order to help you focus on what counts: your mission.
Citrin Cooperman partners and principals across the firm are actively involved in various professional associations, organizations, and their respective committees. While uncommon among accounting firms, we believe that active participation on boards of local not-for-profit organizations and national associations enhances our ability to serve our not-for-profit clients and demonstrates our commitment to providing excellent service to the not-for-profit industry.
As further evidence of our commitment to the not-for-profit community, Citrin Cooperman is an active member in various local and national organizations.
Citrin Cooperman’s Not-For-Profit Practice conducts webinars, educational seminars and roundtables, along with releasing publications related to the not-for-profit sector. These services are provided to our clients at no charge since we believe it is important to provide education and an open forum for the exchange of best practices to our clients. Examples of webinars/seminars/roundtables and publications are listed below. Articles and a listing of upcoming events are available on our website by clicking on the “Thought Leadership” tab.

Citrin Cooperman Empowering Diversity and Gender Equality (CC EDGE) strives to establish within Citrin Cooperman a culture that enables each individual to create, within the business framework of the firm, the career that they want based on a safe, respectful and inclusive workplace that provides for equal opportunity, fairness and work-life flexibility. This culture change will be achieved by helping individuals develop success and market facing skills and by infusing an attitude of equality and diversity through firm awareness and outreach activities.
Our vision in creating CC EDGE is to begin an evolution in the culture of our firm that embraces these three important elements: Equal Opportunity and Fairness; Work-Life Flexibility; and a Safe, Respectful Workplace. We believe strongly in the need for cultural change so that each individual can create the life and career they want for themselves while building a stronger future for the firm. CC EDGE is a long-term strategy to create a firm environment that works for everyone. It is not another initiative focused on achieving a short-term goal, or a check-the-box program for a specific group. We are committed to fostering a change in both the day-to-day experiences and the career growth of everyone at Citrin Cooperman.
