About Shannon & Associates, LLP

Nonprofits have unique accounting needs—you live that reality every day. That’s why working with an accounting firm experienced with nonprofits is so important. We understand the challenges you face as you strive to balance revenue streams with your organization’s mission.

Shannon & Associates is local, easy to access and has been serving Pacific Northwest nonprofits for over 50 years. We are listed in the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the Puget Sound's top locally-owned Certified Public Accounting firms. As a member of this community, we are committed to helping you succeed and achieving your goals.

We would consider you one of our most important clients – not “just another one of many.” We focus on serving one client at a time, and we make it a priority to provide excellent client service with a personal touch. Our approach provides a key advantage that allows us to react quickly, respond honestly, and communicate clearly with our clients.
 
Our clients expect the services rendered to go beyond the financial statements. We thoroughly understand the needs and expectations of our clients and welcome the opportunity to serve as business advisors. We are interested in your growth, achieving your mission’s purpose, and your overall success. It is our combined industry experience and entrepreneurial spirit that positions us to offer useful business advice that goes beyond the audit.

With our focus on serving nonprofit organizations, we view it as essential to keep our clients informed about the latest regulatory, accounting, auditing and legal issues. We regularly issue audit, industry and tax alerts, as well as provide newsletters focused on the issues and concerns of nonprofit clients.
