100% Dedicated to Serving the Nonprofit Community
We Serve Nonprofits ExclusivelyNonprofit organizations are critical to the long-term success of our communities. Without them, many dreams and goals would go unfulfilled. Yet these organizations are required to meet increasingly complex administrative and regulatory challenges with ever-tightening resources. That’s why Nonprofit Suite is 100% dedicated to provide services ONLY to nonprofit organizations. We’re proud of this distinction.

Nonprofit Suite has been the second arm of the Richmond Promise team. As a young organization, NPS has provided so much more than bookkeeping — they have provided partnership, insight, and confidence in our organization, helping us lay a foundation and set up operational systems based on transparency and integrity — that allow us to focus our energy and attention on our mission of college success for all Richmond students. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to know that our accounting is in the reliable, competent hands of the Nonprofit Suite team. Beyond the bookkeeping, they have provided counsel on a variety of nonprofit issues from board development and management, to navigating our first audit. Thank you to the entire NPS team! We consider you part of the Richmond Promise family!Jessie Stewart, Executive Director
