We heard RPB had many schools as clients and regularly collaborated with DPI on various financial matters. We wanted to align with an accounting firm that was knowledgeable about the MPCP, was respected by DPI, and that had “a seat at the table” when establishing compliance requirements. RPB is knowledgeable, client-focused, professional, and I’ve always appreciated their willingness to advocate for our schools when DPI raises audit-related questions.
We needed our 401K plan audited. Our accountants recommended RPB, as did our Third Party Administrator. RPB turned out to be fantastic—they ask for what they need and do the rest behind the scenes. We’ve used only them for our audits and are very happy—they’ve been our partner since 2011. They are fast, efficient, and friendly.
RPB has the best reputation in non-profit finance and has been our go-to for more than 30 years. Patrick truly knows his clients and their needs. We appreciated seeing RPB as community sponsors and of our own fundraising efforts.
We’ve used RPB as our exclusive tax firm for more than 18 years. We’ve always received reliable advice and prompt professional service and we’ve never had a problem. I’ve referred several friends to RPB for tax-related service and all have been very pleased.
RPB is consistent. They do everything possible to assign the same auditors each year. This matters to us: if a recent graduate is new to the auditing and non-profit business, there’s a definite learning curve. A new set of auditors can take an additional 15 to 25 hours of our staff time to get through an audit. This isn’t the case with RPB. I seriously respect this company and their work.
An audit is important for funders of organizations like Schools That Can, so we wanted a long-term accounting partner. RPB was recommended to us because they have experience with similar organizations and a reputation for quality. We immediately had a good connection with the team and knew it would be a lasting partnership. They’ve been our CPA firm since our very first audit in 2011.
We’ve been a client of RPB’s for nearly a decade. Pat Hoffert and Katie Reilly continue to keep us on target with internal controls through our annual audit. Their yearly guidance continues to help us grow. We feel RPB treats us like they would a large company—like we matter.
