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.
