It has been a pleasure to work with JJCO for more than 10 years in my roles as Board member and non-profit Finance Director for several organizations. Not only does JJCO have deep non-profit proficiency, provide responsive, timely communications and competitive pricing, as well, they are an integral part of the not-for-profit community in the northwest.

Working with y’all is an absolute joy, and I could talk until I’m blue in the face telling people why.

Communication and understanding are key to a successful audit and the Jacobson Jarvis team is outstanding. In particular this year has been a reminder of how valuable our relationship is.
Continuous improvement is a goal that our entire team shares and we appreciate your focus on process improvement.
Thank you so much for the clarity of your communication and the timeliness of your work.

This is exactly the kind of informative feedback I was longing for. Yet again, the team at JJCO has exceeded my expectations on the thoroughness of your counsel. Thank you for the excellent service you provide to the non-profit sector.

Howard brings knowledge and an interest in the broader impact of accounting rules to both his work with clients and his active participation in the development of the field.

Erin and Howard have partnered with United Way of King County’s board training series, presenting 11 workshops over five years to more than 300 people, and always with terrific reviews. In just three hours Erin and Howard distill financial statements and 990 tax forms into the most important pieces board members need to know about each area in order to be effective. Both Erin and Howard are experts in their field and participants rave about their presenting style and their knowledge.
We are so grateful they and their firm Jacobson Jarvis are committed to helping board members serving the local nonprofit community have the knowledge they need to be the best leaders possible. Thank you!

I attended a workshop today on reading financials with Erin and Howard. They were terrific!! Just thought I would pass along that feedback. They made a boring topic quite fun. I learned a lot!!

Jacobson Jarvis’ presentation to our Board was exactly what we needed. They hit the nail on the head. I had many Board members come up to me after the meeting to echo my opinion and to say that they really appreciated the handout (What Board Members Need to Know About Not-for-Profit Finance and Accounting).
– Briel Schmitz, Head of School, Spruce Street School
Erin makes understanding nonprofit financials clear, easy, and fun. Her presentation puts beginners at ease, and will offer new nuggets of information to veterans.
– Megan Davies, Director of Programs & Communications, Washington Women’s Foundation
It is a pleasure to work with JJCO each year on our audit and tax filings. They are well-informed about non-profit needs, approachable and always available to answer questions throughout the year, and have the resources that allows them to meet deadlines.
– Kathy Mania, Senior Director of Finance & Operations, Cascade Bicycle Club
Erin is one of those wonderful partners who knows her stuff when it comes to nonprofit finance, understands how it fits into the bigger picture of nonprofit success, and is creative in finding new ways to reach new people. It all came together for us with Finance Unlocked for Nonprofits (FUN) for which Erin served as the content expert. As she does in her in person trainings, Erin took complex ideas and expressed them in easy to understand ways. As we have shared FUN across Washington, it is Erin’s nonprofit finance knowledge, clear communication, and generous spirit that shines through.
– Nancy Bacon, Director of Learning, Washington Nonprofits
I want to thank you for the opportunity to attend your QuickBooks training class. While I’m not a novice with QuickBooks, I learned so very much more about using the software that applies directly to my daily work. I learned how to use many features with which I was unfamiliar and many new “tricks” and shortcuts. I also appreciate your offer to be a resource should I have questions in the future.
– Lynn Good, Senior Director of Finance & Operations, Puget Sound Christian Clinic
I was researching financial management for nonprofits. I am new to the accounting world and found this booklet so easy to read and understand. And it provided great checklists on what we should be highlighting for our board.
