Non-profit Financial Leadership – Indianapolis (IN)

You’ve got the strategy, the mission, and the vision set for your non-profit organization – and we know many non-profit leaders wear multiple hats. But to grow the organization, you need to know the ins and outs of running a business, too. The list of what non-profit organizations must do on an ongoing basis seems endless – but the good news is, you don’t have to go it alone. 

Barnes Dennig works with more than 300 non-profits in our region, building strategies that help them advance their mission and thrive. We look beyond the numbers to identify trends and the opportunities they reveal, and work with you to help you make the most of every resource.

Your cause, our commitment

As an Indiana non-profit, you can’t separate your passion for your cause from the constant need for money to fund it. And raising money is just the beginning.

You have to manage your cash flow. You have to report on your financial strength to meet increasing demands for transparency. All while navigating changing technology and accounting standards.

The good news is, you don’t have to do it alone.

We know the uncertainties non-profits face.

Barnes Dennig is an Indianapolis CPA and tax firm with in-depth experience helping you handle your day-to-day realities. Our cross-functional team can mitigate the effects of:

  • Changing requirements for receiving and accounting for government funding and grants from foundations, which increase administrative costs and lower your reserves
  • Loss of funding from major donors, which can be hard to recoup
  • Fluctuating membership, which affects your cash flow and donor interest

Patrick Frambes and the audit team have always been helpful and patient with us as we go through our annual independent audits. Brad Chaffin along with Patrick provide a concise overview of the audit to our Finance Committee after the audits are complete. The audit team work diligently to make sure all audit questions are clearly understood and that they confirm the information prior to providing the final audit.

I have had years of great experience, and find this firm to be an excellent resource. I am a small nonprofit and my audit team has spent a lot of time teaching me how to manage our financials thoroughly, ethically, and accurately. I really appreciate what they have shared with us. I have found great value in them.

— Jenny O., CEO

We moved to using Barnes Dennig as our audit firm almost three years ago, and we frequently remark that it is one of the best decisions we've ever made. The team that we work with is incredibly knowledgeable about not-for-profit organizations, and they have been a terrific resource for our finance and leadership team -- especially in a season of growth for our organization.
