Industries / Nonprofit
As custodians of public funds and donations, you must discharge your responsibilities carefully. The increased scrutiny you face puts pressure on you unlike that felt by business owners. Our Members and staff serve on many social service, arts, and foundation boards, so we are intimately aware of your challenges and opportunities. You need an advisor who understands what you’re facing on a daily basis. Who knows the role your credibility plays within your community. Who can bring ideas to improve what you are doing. That’s where the nonprofit team at SEK adds value.
Our nonprofit team receives specialized training related specifically to nonprofit organizations. The members of our nonprofit team are often involved in providing that training to other professionals and our clients through seminars. At our annual nonprofit seminar, you can receive training on the current topics impacting the nonprofit sector.
With the expertise that comes from working with more than 300 nonprofits, you will see how our knowledge evolves into advice, suggestions, and fresh ideas that will propel you forward.

I have worked with SEK for over 15 years. The experience has always been top-notch! I truly value their willingness to ‘go that extra mile’ and consistently provide great service. Having a community minded organization who truly cares about my agency and the community we serve adds immeasurable value to the service they provide.

I am writing to recommend the services of SEK. SEK has been the SU Foundation's auditor for many years. The SU Foundation and our Board of Directors have been very pleased with the services SEK has provided and continues to provide us. I feel confident in recommending SEK's services. They are not only thorough but also easy to work with and always willing to take the time to discuss our concerns and questions.

The professional relationship we have built with the SEK audit team is exceptional. They are willing and available to help us year-round, not just during the audit process. Their knowledge of nonprofit operations is also exceptional. SEK supports the YWCA Hanover in so many other ways, too. They give back to the community. They truly believe in our mission. We value the great people at SEK.

I like that I am treated as an equal, no matter how limited my knowledge of any given aspect of my account. I also enjoy the fact that I am treated with respect and all information is explained to me on a level that I can understand.
