Hand Calculator-sm

We can reduce the stress of dealing with finances or help you with improvements to your financial systems. More than 80 organizations contract with us to manage their books, while they manage their mission. Many more tap our expertise for 990 preparation, financial policies, setting up financial systems, and more. Our services are designed to work for nonprofits of all sizes – those just getting started to those that speak nonprofit accounting fluently.

Let us take the guesswork out of contracting for bookkeeping, payroll, Form 990 preparation, and other financial services. We select financial service staff who have years of practice with nonprofits. They receive assistance on technical matters from experienced staff, including team members who are CPAs! And our team will ensure your needs are met even if your financial services associate is unavailable to you due to illness or a vacation.

We offer ongoing contracted financial services either through regularly scheduled services provided in your offices or “virtually.” For virtual services we coordinate with you through online accounting software and by phone and email. Virtual services are ideal for smaller organizations, particularly those that do not have an office or have few staff.

501 Commons’ Tax and Accounting service provides Form 990 preparation and assistance with more complex accounting needs. Note that we do not conduct financial reviews or audits, but can refer you to some excellent firms in Washington State. Additionally, you can contract with us for consulting on budgeting, financial policies, internal controls, financial management training, and more. We make sure your financial management systems are robust, easily understood, and relevant to your organization.

For inquires, please complete a Request for Assistance Form or contact Financial Services Client Engagement Specialist Jenny Lundqvist at or (206) 682-6704 ext. 108.

For contracted financial services, please keep in mind that our services are in high demand currently. Please let us know as soon as you can that you want to use our services, so we can get you set up to start services when needed.
