You give it your all. So do we.

It’s true that all organizations face pressure to be efficient and comply with industry standards. But for nonprofits – which often face greater scrutiny, tighter regulations and thinner margins – efficiency and compliance are vital to not only the well-being of your organization, but the pursuit of your mission.

Nonprofits are the bedrock of our community, providing services that are essential to the people, economy and future of the places we call home. That’s why, for nearly 50 years, Dugan & Lopatka’s dedicated, specialized nonprofit team has served numerous mid-sized organizations across the Chicagoland region. Through this hands-on experience – as well as our employees’ personal experiences, as many of our team members serve on the boards of local nonprofit organizations – we have seen first-hand that no two nonprofits are alike. Each faces its own challenges; each has its own opportunities for improvement. As such, we take a personalized approach to each client, tailoring our services to meet your needs.

Our approach is centered on proactivity. While we provide the complete range of services that you would expect from an accounting firm that specializes in nonprofits – helping our clients meet the industry’s special accounting, auditing and reporting requirements – we also ensure that your organization is prepared for the immediate and long-term future through single audits, cash-flow forecasts and advisory services. Annually, we conduct more than 95 nonprofit audits, including 25 single audits.

Trusted, experienced and forward-thinking, our team has the skills and expertise to help you meet your financial goals, so you can focus on making a difference.
