Our Not for Profit group has the passion and commitment to ensure that MHA MacIntyre Hudson is the best possible partner for a not-for-profit organisation. Our approach eases compliance to support organisational health, and empowers operational fitness to maximise impact on your beneficiaries.
We offer a whole life-cycle service – from start-ups to winding-up - for clients ranging from local community and volunteer-led organisations to high-profile national and international not for profits. Whatever your size, stage of development, or area of focus, you can rely on us to have the experience and services you need.
Our partners have decades of professional and personal commitment to the sector, and a determination to identify practical, real-world solutions for our clients. Our strong technical expertise contributes to the development of the sector’s regulatory framework. Being actively involved in standard-setting means we not only help our clients understand changes they face, but help them prepare proactively.
We are actively embedded in the not-for-profit sector; this puts us in the best position to support and empower our clients to be fully aware and informed of all relevant changes and developments that impact them. We accompany this tailored communication with practical guidance to ease compliance and support the adoption of best practice, prepared by individuals that have undertaken these actions themselves.
We are strong believers in the importance of the not-for-profit sector, so we keep abreast of key challenges and issues. For the wider benefit of the sector we also contribute our expertise to support the sector’s infrastructure; we contribute to the work of many key sector bodies, including as members of working groups and host to joint events and services.
Our empowering compliance and assurance services include:
Our advisory services are designed to aid organisational and operational fitness:
