DeVito & Co., LLC

Building an Individualized Approach

At DeVito & Co., LLC, our Not-for-Profit Services Group recognizes the important role these organizations fill in society, as well as the challenges such organizations face in today's business and regulatory environment. Since each organization is different, it is important to address these issues on an individual basis, taking into consideration an organization's mission, corporate structure, financial stewardship, and public reporting.

As part of our industry and service commitment, our Not-for-Profit Services Group can provide your organization with the necessary business intelligence and financial advice that will allow you to focus on fulfilling your mission and financial objectives. Additionally, we can help you minimize risk, enhance financial stewardship, and protect its tax-exempt status. To best service the diverse needs of our not-for-profit clients, we have created specialty teams in four key not-for-profit segments, which include social service and charitable agencies, professional associations, foundations, and religious organizations. Our professionals spend considerable time staying abreast of key issues affecting these segments.

Not-For-Profit Social Service and Charitable Agencies

Social service and charitable agencies are vital to humanitarian fulfillment. Unfortunately, many agencies are faced with the challenge of maintaining the necessary revenue and cash flow to support their respective missions. Understanding the unique needs of social service and charitable agencies, we can help your agency:

  • Leverage its corporate governance policies and financial stewardship to improve organizational efficiency, and to attract and maintain financial contributors and other stakeholders
  • Assess proposed ideas for supporting community and educational programs
  • Enhance operating performance and internal controls
  • Develop long-term strategic plans to ensure future viability
  • Integrate technology to enhance operational efficiency

Not-for-Profit Professional Associations

Professional associations are the representative voice for their respective professions and are important to public advocacy. These associations typically provide members with ethical guidelines and standards, as well as resources and tools to enhance the services rendered to employers, clients, and the general public.

Working closely with professional associations, our Not-for-Profit Services Group helps your organization:

  • Leverage assets to support programs and financial objectives
  • Financial personnel recruitment
  • Identify alternative revenue centers
  • Provide value to membership through special service offerings

Not-for-Profit Foundations

The philanthropic sector is expected to grow dramatically as a result of the intergenerational transfer of wealth (trillions of dollars) over the next two or three decades. With this anticipated growth may come legislative changes, such as with tax incentives and regulatory standards, which could adversely impact foundations. One factor fueling legislative reform is the fact that financial institutions are marketing charitable products.

Given potential legislative changes, foundations should take this opportunity to address their corporate governance policies, including accountability and standards for giving. Additionally, it is important that foundations help policy makers and related parties understand the true value philanthropy brings to society. Our Not-for-Profit Services Group can help your foundation:

  • Determine the best approach to controlling and accounting for alternative investments
  • Implement practices to improve corporate governance policies and procedures
  • Respond to changes in the philanthropic landscape that may adversely impact its mission
  • Balance financial objectives with philanthropic objectives
  • Integrate technology to enhance operational efficiency

Not-for-Profit Religious Organizations

Religious organizations are very similar to charitable organizations in that they raise money to fund various types of charitable and educational programs. These programs may benefit members of a congregation, community, or individuals in need worldwide.

Our experts can help your religious organization:

  • Implement systems and controls to enhance cash flow management
  • Address issues relating to planned giving strategies
  • Develop strategic plans to best meet humanitarian goals and objectives
  • Maximize real estate assets to achieve specific financial objectives
