In an environment characterized by increased stakeholder demands, heightened public scrutiny and enhanced performance expectations, Marks Paneth helps nonprofit organizations meet their requirements by ensuring that their accounting information is accurate, complete and transparent; that their financial reporting complies with all relevant requirements; and that they’re audit-ready.

Proudly serving several of New York’s largest charities – as ranked by Crain’s New York Business, Marks Paneth’s audit, tax and advisory professionals understand the needs of our nonprofit clients.

Our professionals are actively involved in the nonprofit sectors – frequently speaking at industry events, publishing industry-relevant content, participating on standard-setting bodies and serving on organizations’ boards of directors.
