FMA is fantastic + such a huge asset to DCYF grantees. I strongly recommend continuing to work w/ them around finance and budgeting training/technical assistance.
FMA has been an invaluable thought partner in helping us think through not only the process of our financial due diligence, but the usefulness, both to our foundation and to our grantee partners, of reviewing financial data in a way that matches our values and helps achieve our common goals.
Our grantees continue to express gratitude for support the BDO FMA team provides and our staff have benefitted from the advice and analysis provided on our portfolio of grantees.
The training session for our team was excellent. It hit the right note in terms of staff skill level and the content was exactly what we needed.
I attended a session at the PEAK conference led by Surdna and BDO FMA on financial due diligence. I was really impressed with the approach and the simplified process that they outlined – very much appreciated the session and the work of BDO FMA, and advocating for financial due diligence to support planning for the grant rather than just reducing Foundation risk.

Our History with Grantmaker Collaborations
From our inception, grantmakers have found BDO FMA to be a skilled and thoughtful advisor to both internal staff and grantees. In turn, BDO FMA values the ability to provide services to grantmakers and their grantees, scaling up our impact on the sector. We now have a significant portfolio of cohorts and other initiatives undertaken with grantmakers to provide capacity building and financial management training to their grantees and establish communities of practice among various staff roles.
While we often work with grantmakers to support their grantees, we have a growing team of consultants dedicated to helping funders do their philanthropic work with greater efficiency and confidence. Together, the leaders on this team have broad experience across grantmaker types and roles, and have particular expertise in the internal financial management skills and processes necessary to carry out those roles with excellence, building stronger relationships with the organizations they fund.
These Philanthropic Services are built on a foundation of nonprofit financial management training for Program Officers and Grants Managers. On the cutting edge of our services is Financial Due Diligence support — assessing your current practices and making recommendations for improvements, as well as providing outsourced due diligence services.
