For most of his career, Lee served small- to mid-size businesses in the accounting technology sector; first as an independent consultant and later as a Value Added Reseller (VAR) of IRP solutions (primarily Abila Software).
Upon consideration of semi-retirement in 2005, Lee volunteered and served as Board Treasurer and as chair of the audit and finance committees for two Colorado nonprofit organizations. He utilized his extensive skill set to help the organizations overcome financial management challenges, making a positive and lasting impact. This experience, along with a growing passion for serving the not-for-profit sector, led Lee to form a business with dual objectives: commercial sustainability and giving back to the community. Putting any thought of retirement on hold, Lee sold his commercial accounts to a local Sage VAR of commercial software and became a VAR of Sage nonprofit accounting software.
With the help of its dedicated team of devoted professionals, NFP Partners has evolved significantly since 2006. The firm currently provides a wide range of financial management products and services to nonprofit and special government organizations.
NFP Partners realized that many smaller not-for-profit organizations, which sometimes need the most help, often lack the human and financial resources to internally manage their finances. In response to this need, in 2009 it implemented a business unit to provide outsourced accounting and CFO services in. As small organizations grow and become successful, they transition to professional management and require more sophisticated financial management solutions. NFP Partners provides this valuable service, which is entirely compatible to its software sales and consulting component.
