Not-For-Profit Organizations

A structured roadmap to accomplish more with less.

Enabling organizations to be a catalyst for positive change

Not-for-profit organizations (NPO) are visionaries that fill critical roles in communities across Canada. They help extend social services and fund much-needed research to support underserviced demographics—but limited resources, increasing competition in the sector, and complex regulatory requirements make trailblazing a challenge. As the pressure to be innovative in fundraising and marketing initiatives continues to grow, access to funding for some is diminishing.

At BDO, we are dedicated to helping you scale your impact with confidence. We can help you optimize your resources while adapting to changes in operating models, regulatory and funding models, implementing risk management strategies, and developing sound governance practices so you can modernize your organization and move forward with purpose.
