Tightly focused, deeply experienced
Jacobson Jarvis was founded in 1991 as the only certified public accounting firm in the Northwest to focus 100% of audit and consulting capacity on the not-for-profit community. And we have remained true to that charter.
In addition to audit and consulting services, our full-spectrum capability includes tax preparation as well as accounting software services and training, geared specifically to the not-for-profit sector.
We have specific not-for-profit experience with:
Jacobson Jarvis's senior leadership team is widely viewed as a leading authority on issues impacting not-for-profits. They are frequent speakers at not-for-profit conferences, and actively participate in state and national committees regarding not-for-profit accounting and related matters. They also routinely provide complimentary, in-depth board training in the areas of governance, financial reporting and other tax-related issues.
Because Jacobson Jarvis is focused solely on not-for-profits, the firm attracts professionals with a deep passion for community service, and retains them longer than most firms do. Many of our committed team members have served, or continue to serve, not-for-profits as consultants, employees and volunteers. This serves to reinforce their sharp insight into the complex needs of the sector, which drives more solid and informed recommendations for their clients. Low staff turnover and strong client satisfaction have resulted in strong client retention rates and high rates of referrals from existing clients.
At Jacobson Jarvis, our mission is to help nonprofits work better, not harder, enabling them to have more time to accomplish their mission.
