our company

Our mission at NFP Partners is to impact the nonprofit world, one accounting challenge at a time. This is accomplished by providing innovative outsourced nonprofit accounting services and great technology tools.

NFP Partners offers more than just accounting software. When helping our nonprofit clients become stronger financial managers, we consider the governance and organizational environment in addition to processing and reporting needs before recommending a particular software solution.

Our vision is to provide our services to organizations that are motivated to strive for excellence in helping their constituents, and to be a part of their success. We see no limit to what we can accomplish as a business by staying focused on our mission, maintaining high performance standards, and making NFP Partners a great place to work.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are considered critical pillars at NFP Partners, in not only how we work with our clients, but also with respects to how we operate as a business. Our company currently prioritizes diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility awareness in the following areas (and are finding more ways to do so day-by-day):

  • Allyship Forum: We maintain an active Allyship Forum, which is an optional internal initiative offering resources and monthly calls for dialogue and support. The intention of our Allyship Forum is not to teach or judge, but to help our team members learn about their biases, share experiences, brainstorm, and act on ways to dismantle oppressive systems, and more.
  • Recruitment: We’ve included in our job postings inclusive language to encourage people of color and minorities to apply to lessen barriers marginalized communities often feel when job-seeking. This language includes encouraging them to apply, even if they don’t meet every requirement. We also work to include more of our team members in candidate interviews to help our candidates of color feel more comfortable and offer a more holistic view during the hiring process.
  • Outside consultation and support: We hired an outside firm to help gather authentic feedback from our staff on additional ways we can support them. We also regularly support BIPOC-owned businesses through staff and client appreciation gifts, purchasing swag from Black-owned shops, and more.

We are a woman-owned business that is constantly seeking additional ways we can move the needle for DEI work in our industry, on our team, and individually.

More About NFP Partners

With the help of our dedicated team of devoted professionals, NFP Partners has grown and evolved significantly since being founded in 2006. Lee Bengston, CPA, founded NFP Partners to provide financial management solutions and services to the not-for-profit sector.

As the organization grew, we realized many smaller nonprofit organizations, which often need the most help, lack the human and financial resources to internally manage their finances.

In response to this need, in 2009, we implemented a business unit to provide outsourced accounting and CFO services. 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 with its software sales and consulting component. In fact, for some smaller nonprofit organizations, we provide both the software and accounting services.

Core Values

At the root of NFP Partners are our core values, which our organization lives by and operates within. Those core values are:

  • Build: Create a sturdy framework and build encouragement, support and trust
  • Unite: Connect with others, strive to understand, and be a partner for success
  • Care: Be empathetic to other situations; be compassionate
  • Dedication: Commit to purpose, adaptability, and excellence in all things
  • Knowledge: Embody a culture of experience – learning and sharing knowledge
  • Communication: Be honest, be approachable, and provide solutions
  • Innovate: Introduce new ideas to expand our impact
We’re partnership-oriented. We’re partners with our clients, among our team, and with the different and varying identities that make up the nonprofit world. We are also partners in unity. Our clients’ missions are important to us and as a team, we work hard to move them forward in the most financially sound way possible.

“NFP Partners allows financial expertise at the fingertips of organizations who may not desire the financial obligation that comes from hiring a full-time employee. Many nonprofits benefit from the services provided by NFP Partners by having financial bookkeeping which helps executive directors plan for growth.”
