Barnes Dennig Helps Non-profit Keep its Eyes on its Mission
Regional Accounting Firm Thrives on Complexity
The Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI) is many things to many people. To clients, it’s a source of support and vocational opportunity. To the wider community, it’s an inspiration. To Barnes Dennig, the non-profit’s CPA firm, it’s a challenge that’s exciting and motivating. And CABVI’s success proves the firm is more than up to the task.
Every year, CABVI provides vocational opportunities to thousands of people who are blind or visually impaired. It’s a dynamic organization, constantly growing and changing to meet the needs of an expanding client base.
The agency’s clients work in a variety of roles. They produce manufactured goods through the Industries Program, for example, and they sell office supplies through an online social enterprise. That means CABVI’s funding sources are unusually diversified.
Like CABVI, Barnes Dennig is known for providing individualized services that meet unique needs and goals. The Barnes Dennig team enjoys the auditing challenges those multiple revenue streams generate, conducting meticulous audits that strengthen CABVI and keep it on the right path as it continues to grow – for example, when CABVI grew large enough to need a 401(k) audit, the Barnes Dennig team was there to guide them through.
Multiple revenue streams aren’t the only kind of complexity the firm is prepared to handle. Barnes Dennig has one of the region’s largest not-for-profit accounting practices, so it’s adept at helping organizations like CABVI with a wide variety of issues, from mitigating the effects of changing requirements for foundation grants and government funding to shifting client needs and changes to donations from major donors. Whatever the challenge, Barnes Dennig knows what to do.
And Barnes Dennig’s dedication to CABVI doesn’t just show in the work it performs. In addition to sponsoring the organization’s annual 5K, the firm has sent volunteers to CABVI for Barnes Dennig’s Community Outreach Day, an annual event where the firm closes its doors and sends all its employees out to participate in community projects throughout the region.
Barnes Dennig has helped CABVI navigate changes in financial positions. It’s provided business management analytics and benchmarking. It keeps CABVI up-to-date on state and federal laws and regulations that impact its operations.
Wherever CABVI’s mission takes it, the Barnes Dennig team will be there to provide the knowledge and insights it needs to thrive.
