Who we are

BDO FMA exists to build a community of individuals with the confidence and skills to lead organizations that change the world.

Since 1999, our dedicated consultants have served major foundations and nonprofit organizations nationwide and around the world by helping them develop the capacity they need to fulfill their missions more effectively and efficiently. As of 2021, Fiscal Management Associates LLC has become BDO FMA LLC, a part of BDO USA. With this new relationship, we augment BDO FMA’s empathetic approach to meeting clients where they are with the significantly broader range of accounting, advisory and consultative services for which BDO USA is known.

BDO FMA provides experienced financial management and capacity-building technical assistance, including organizational consultation and training, using an approach tailored to individual organizations and their specific needs. BDO FMA serves nonprofit organizations and funders, empowering them to effectively manage their resources, improve operations, and position themselves for stable, long-term growth.

Drawing on a culturally and linguistically diverse staff, with experience across the philanthropic sector, we deliver services that are sensitive to the needs of both nonprofit and funding organizations. Our collaborative approach includes funder input and involvement at each stage of an engagement, and at the core of every project we deliver is our commitment to developing strong and trusting relationships between funders and their grantees.

How we work

Integrity is the cornerstone of our relationships. We recognize the sensitivity of financial discussions and balance the importance of transparency within the organization with external discretion.

We are dedicated to delivering high quality services rooted in best practices and applied in pragmatic ways. We work to understand the unique needs of your community and organization and match them with a diverse toolkit of approaches.

We consider nonprofit leaders the experts at what they do, and we collaborate with them so they can achieve their goals. Our team works alongside nonprofit leaders to empower them with the information and capacity needed to meet their missions.

Our team believes diverse perspectives are key to identifying the best solutions. Our talented staff reflects a diversity of cultures, knowledge, and skills. We believe in creating an inclusive work culture and learning environment where people from all backgrounds and identities can be their full, authentic selves.
