Missions in unison

Like you, we guide our firm by our values. We follow the Golden Rule, we put people first, and we believe there’s no right way to do the wrong thing. These principles help us to support your growth and success. While your goal is to fulfill your mission and give back in meaningful ways to your community, our goal is always the same — allow our clients to spend less time worrying about their financial health and more time doing what they do best.

John Bebes, our not-for-profit practice leader, is proud of his team’s experience and enthusiasm for this industry. “Not only do our partners and staff have the technical know-how to help clients build sustainable organizations, but they’re also driven by their passion to leave the world a better place for others.”

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.
