Nonprofit Organizations

At H2R CPA, we are committed to serving nonprofit organizations and have been doing so for over 40 years, since 1975.

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the ideal combination of small-firm attention and the depth-of-knowledge and insight of a larger firm, H2R CPA has developed an effective strategy to ensure the firm meets the needs of our clients in the nonprofit community, through our Nonprofit Services Group.​

Nonprofit Services Group

H2R CPA’s Nonprofit Services Group is dedicated to identifying issues specific to nonprofit organizations in a proactive manner. This group ensures that our nonprofit clients have the most current knowledge and recommendations to keep their organization in compliance and on the cutting edge of any new developments or opportunities in this complex sector.

Our team members attend the annual Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) nonprofit conference which updates the nonprofit sector on new accounting pronouncements and regulations.


H2R CPA is currently a member in good standing of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC).


Our firm is officially licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Accountancy and our team is properly educated, trained and experienced in performing financial and Single (A-133) audits.
