Client Testimonials

“We engaged Brooks, McGinnis & Company because we wanted a quality, in-depth audit by a firm who specializes in working with nonprofit organizations. The audit team communicates well with our staff, management, and Board Members and we do not have to train audit staff as they know nonprofits! I don't hesitate to call with a question during the year and they are always there to help us work through issues and provide feedback on how we might improve our processes.”

“Shortly after relocating to the Atlanta area we were in need of of the services of an audit firm. Brooks, McGinnis & Company was a recommendation from another organization because of the firm's experience in dealing with non-profit organizations such as ours. Beyond the thoroughness and comprehensive reporting associated with the audit process, as we expected, it is the people from Brooks, McGinnis & Company that really deliver.
