At Sikich, we focus on the “business” of your not-for-profit organization so that you can focus on your mission and the community you serve.
Here's our recipe for success:
Specialization in the Not-for-Profit Industry – 34 years serving not-for-profit clients as a firm
Sikich’s not-for-profit professionals are attuned, involved, and experienced directly in your industry. We have a deeper understanding of your organization, changing regulations and the challenges you face. Plus, we are skilled at providing board training, governance training and big-picture organizational strategy – in addition to traditional compliance-related services, such as financial statement preparation and audit and tax services. Our industry-focused engagement professionals are sought out to be committee members and technical advisors to leading national standard-setting bodies and state regulators
Commitment at the Senior Level – 20+ partners serving the not-for-profit practice
In addition to delivering the financial and technical competence your organization needs, Sikich prides itself on the involvement of its senior leadership team. We take a hands-on approach with every client and devote time to act as a trusted advisor on major business and financial decisions. While many firms focus on looking back on your past 12 months of activity, our senior advisors take a proactive approach using your past data to help you prepare for the future.
Exclusive Relationship with the AICPA – Additional resources to enhance reputation and bolster success
Sikich strives to partner with you to help you make smart financial decisions in the complex and changing not-for-profit industry. Only available through a relationship with Sikich, we can provide you a discounted rate for the highly-sot after AICPA NFP Certificates (Levels I and II).

What Others Have said About Sikich
“My Sikich assurance, audit and tax team has been professional and accurate every year we have worked with them. It’s important to me that I work with a firm who employs detailed-orientated professionals who understand higher education institutions. Sikich is the epitome of that for us.”
Melissa Dyson, Controller, Illinois College
“Since engaging Sikich as our audit and tax firm, we have been thoroughly impressed with the team’s excellent level of service. We experienced a very smooth, easy transition where Sikich worked off of the list of schedules we were accustomed to having prepared and we were able to avoid re-writing narratives. Sikich brings a unique and valuable approach to our audit by providing specialists for both the “Single Audit” and the general financial statement audit. Having two teams that are specialized in their approaches has proved to be a big benefit – not just in terms of audit efficiency, but also in terms of Sikich being able to provide a value-added benefit to our student financial aid personnel.”
Tom Hallett, Chief Financial Officer, Concordia University Chicago
