In turbulent times, it’s critical to have someone on your team who can answer this question: Are we doing this correctly?

This year I celebrate my 24th nonprofit audit. I have been privileged to work with incredibly professional and intelligent people from four different firms; the team at Abdo tops them all. The collaborating way they approach their work results in the feeling of a true partnership. The intention of an annual audit is to ensure compliance and provide solutions to be better as an organization – we are better today due to our partnership with Abdo!
