About BDO

At BDO, we take a special interest in nonprofit organizations. Our nonprofit practice is the largest industry group locally and the largest national practice of all CPA firms. We are honored to serve more than 400 tax-exempt organizations in the Seattle market.

Our extensive experience serving nonprofits allows us the opportunity to advise our clients on an array of industry specific issues beyond their traditional tax and audit needs. Our firm specializes in advising clients on:

• retirement plans
• board governance practices
• charitable and conditional contributions
• federal awards and grants
• internal controls
• increased regulation and oversight
• seasonal cash flow
• state and local tax issues

We understand nonprofit organizations and how they are different from their for-profit counterparts. Our services are tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. Starting at our first planning meeting, we ask how we can best serve an organization. Technical know-how and exemplary client service are high priorities for our firm, we focus on providing sound advice and serving your organization’s long-term needs.
