Nonprofit Organizations

Greater Scrutiny. Increased Transparency. More Compliance Requirements.

Nonprofit organizations are scrutinized more than ever today. Donors seek richer information with the expectation of transparency. Boards strive for operational efficiency gains to help ensure sustainability. Watchdog organizations collect and share vast information to enforce accountability. Regulatory and tax authorities monitor activities and reporting to ensure adherence to ever-increasing compliance demands. This intense interest in nonprofit organizations will likely only grow.  Success depends on adequate funding, generous donations, and committed volunteers.  Smart strategies always help in these times of heavy competition for contributions.

"Not-for-profit organizations face challenges every day. They have to manage their administrative costs to ensure the maximum amount of funding received goes to the mission. They have to come up with ways to maintain or, if they are lucky, increase funding. They present a difficult challenge to most financial institutions to have the availability to borrow money. On top of all of this, they have to deal with changing accounting standards that are presenting sweeping changes to the reporting requirements. The industry team at BRC understand those challenges.  In addition to serving numerous not-for-profit clients, many of us serve on not-for-profit boards in the community.  We see and live these struggles, too.  So when you are having issues with meeting budget or making the difficult decisions about where to cut budget, we can provide insight from what we are seeing from others in similar situations to help you make the right decisions without compromising your ability to provide the services that your community so desperately needs."
