The primary service of CVAS is to help nonprofit organizations obtain accounting services at no cost. CVAS recruits volunteer accountants, and then matches them with nonprofit organizations in need of accounting services. Several types of volunteer accounting services are available as described below.
The Technical Assistance Program provides direct, short-term help to nonprofit organizations throughout the nation. Whether it's a small problem, a complete breakdown of the internal accounting system, or preparation of financial information for a potential grantor, CVAS volunteers can help.
Free services include preparation, creation, and consultation regarding:
- Accounting Systems
- Cash Flow Projections
- Financial Management
- Financial Reports
- Internal Control Systems
- Tax returns
Reduced Fee Audits
Unfortunately, our volunteer accountants cannot provide pro bono auditing services. However, they do provide auditing services at a reduced cost. If you would like information on reduced fee audits, or are a CPA interested in providing reduced fee audit services, please contact us.
Board Member Placement
CVAS believes that nonprofit organizations can benefit greatly from the knowledge and experience which an accounting professional brings to a Board of Directors. CPAs bring a unique perspective and often have a better understanding of a given issue's financial ramifications than other non-CPA lay Board members.
The CVAS Board Member Placement Program has been designed to match nonprofit organizations nationwide with volunteers who share common interests. As a result, the volunteer's personal commitment to the organization is likely to be strong and the relationship between the nonprofit and the volunteer more rewarding.
