not-for-profit expertise

Hood & Strong is nationally recognized as a leader in providing professional services to the not-for-profit sector. Our legacy of working with the Bay Area's not-for-profit community goes back to the firm's founding, representing nearly a century of experience serving organizations of all sizes, scopes and missions. 

Hood & Strong's Not-For-Profit Service Group was created specifically to focus on the needs of this vital and complex sector. The partners and tax and accounting professionals who make up this dedicated team regularly attend and speak at national conferences, sharing ideas, research and solutions on issues and challenges facing the not-for-profit community. 

Our nonprofit tax service offerings include:

  • IRS and State tax-exemption applications (IRS Forms 1023, 1024)
  • Unrelated Business Income Tax analysis
  • Alternative investment reporting and analysis
  • Tax planning for new nonprofit organizations and new lines of programming/business
  • Tax structuring involving for-profit subsidiaries and related organizations
  • Nonprofit employment tax matters
  • Charitable contribution planning, fundraising reporting, and donor contribution matters

And while every picture tells a story, we know that a single image - or pie chart , or spreadsheet - does not paint the full spectrum of your organization. So at Hood & Strong, we begin every not-for-profit assignment with a thorough understanding of your sector, your competition, and your operations. Through competitive analysis, benchmarking studies and like-to-like comparisons of your financial history, we bring a fresh, in-depth perspective to help your organization build and achieve long-term, sustainable success
