Community Focus

We are proud that, since our founding in 1990, serving not-for-profit organizations has been a primary focus for our firm. We strongly believe in helping those who help others. Not only do we provide quality professional services to our non-profit clients, the leadership and staff of Grossman Yanak & Ford LLP are also committed to contributing to the community in which we live and work. The firm has created an annual match program to further motivate employees to make financial contributions to charitable organizations.

Additionally, we encourage our personnel to volunteer their time, share their accounting expertise and develop their leadership skills through involvement in not-for-profit groups. Our professionals serve as consultants for and/or sit on the boards of directors for many organizations, as well as holding leadership roles in their churches, volunteering at their children’s schools and coaching for youth sports groups. Our team includes many graduates of the Leadership Pittsburgh, Inc. and LDI programs.
