It’s great to meet you! If you are a charity, association or not-for-profit and you are looking for internal accounting and bookkeeping services in Toronto (or anywhere in Canada), you have come to the right place.
We are a team of trusted accountants and advisors who support more than 50 successful nonprofit organizations and charities in the Greater Toronto Area. In fact, nonprofit organizations are a strategic focus of our firm.
We service nonprofits with revenues nearing 1 million and up. We focus where we can add the most value: that’s internal accounting and CFO services to optimize financial health. Our clients get a senior level of expertise without having to hire a full-time CPA.
We are not taking on new audit clients at this time. We do not provide short-term consulting or “one-off” tax service.
If it sounds like we’re a fit, drop us a line!
Our nonprofit team is led by Laura Gay, CPA, CA, LPA. Laura is a trusted advisor who ensures no stone is unturned when working with her clients.
Laura works exclusively with not-for-profit organizations and is a recognized specialist in the industry who frequently presents at conferences on topics of importance to not-for-profit associations.
In addition to her work with Stern Cohen, in 2017 Laura was appointed to the Board of Directors of ALS Canada – a national healthcare charity. In 2018, she now serves as Chair, Finance and Audit Committee. This experience working on the inside of an NPO adds to her qualifications. You can read more about Laura on her bio here.
“I made the decision to focus exclusively on nonprofit organizations because I felt my efforts there could make a real difference to NPO’s and the important causes they support.
Specializing in the nonprofit industry has enabled me to become something of an industry expert. And as a result, my clients benefit from the guidance I provide them. Making a difference to a cause I support is immensely rewarding.”
