Background


Dollinger & Co. is a progressive, dynamic firm, committed to the highest standards of excellence in service and technical proficiency. Our established practice focuses on serving not-for-profit organizations. While our clients vary from small charitable organizations to large international membership associations, all share a desire to work with a reputable accounting firm that is well-versed in the special needs of tax-exempt organizations.

We employ a team approach, working closely with the management, the Board and staff of a client organization. We employ seasoned, experienced professionals well-versed in not-for-profit matters. Our clients work with the same professionals from year to year, thus ensuring valuable continuity and stability.

Audit Services

Our audit practice is comprised exclusively of not-for-profit engagements. Our professionals are specifically trained to identify and interpret not-for-profit audit and reporting issues for each individual organization. Since we are a firm focused on serving the not-for-profit sector, we are able to perform high quality professional service in the most thorough and efficient manner. This expertise also enables us to make productive, informed decisions for our clients' accounting and financial operations based on our proven not-for-profit experience. We also specialize in OMB A-133 engagements for organizations that receive federal awards.

Dollinger & Co. employs a progressive and innovative approach to every audit. We use a computerized audit approach that saves the client much time and effort in the audit process. We use electronic document imaging to store all of our work papers and support schedules. This results in instantaneous retrieval of information for the client.  Dollinger & Co. also uses statistical sampling routines resulting in an efficient and thorough audit.

Of premier importance to client organizations, no matter how they are structured or managed, is our ability to provide frank, understandable communication of our audit findings and recommendations. Our resultant letter to management is intended to assist clients in managing their organizations.
