Supporting Tax-Exempt Organizations & Causes

Helping not-for-profits balance the demands of their mission with practical financial and strategic considerations is vital to Lindquist, von Husen & Joyce — ever since its formation over 80 years ago. LvHJ’s core services include financial statement audits and the preparation of information returns for organizations with one or multiple entities. This includes California but also affordable housing properties and entities in other states. We also provide guidance to not-for-profit executive and financial leaders as well as many educational offerings throughout the year.

To help your organization operate efficiently and cost effectively, LvHJ takes a leadership role in national affordable housing and not-for-profit organizations, helping to develop many of the accounting and audit standards used today. In addition, partners and staff devote personal volunteer time and board participation to not-for-profit organizations that improve lives and communities.
