Our Clients Say
We have worked with Plante Moran for 12 years and continue to be pleased with their level of expertise. If a staff person leaves, there is always a seamless transition and continued leadership on the job. We never hesitate to contact our Plante Moran team throughout the year for their sound business advice. They recently helped us with a complicated real estate transaction and their knowledge and expertise was invaluable to us. I would recommend Plante Moran to other not-for-profits because they are much more than just auditors and tax accountants, they are also trusted business advisors.
Our team of more than 200 specialists has dedicated their careers to serving organizations like yours. Annually, we file approximately 600 single audit reports — we’re the second-largest provider in the nation — as well as about 1,800 Form 990s, all the while staying current on emerging issues, trends, and laws affecting the not-for-profit community.
As nationally recognized industry thought leaders, we present at the conferences you never miss and deliver insights to the publications you trust. And because we love what we do and the clients we do it with, many of our partners and staff serve on nonprofit board of directors, committees, and advisory boards. We’re proud to be a part of working toward those missions.
