Our experience with philanthropic and nonprofit organizations includes:
We follow a unique, proprietary approach not offered by other advisors. In utilizing our services, your organization will receive personal attention from experienced professionals. These individuals possess highly diverse backgrounds, permitting our firm to offer “a different perspective” to each of our clients.
The services that we offer to the nonprofit and education sectors are unique in that our assessments look at the complete entity. Having a thorough assessment results in a strong organizational infrastructure that allows your organization the ability to focus on its mission. Having that strong foundational base will create greater opportunities for financial support and creates a stronger vision and mission for your organization.
Many consultants to the nonprofit segment create contracts, which become onerous. They charge flat fees plus expenses, which contractually lock in the client, regardless of the outcome. At Cendrowski Corporate Advisors, we present flexible billing and a price for services, proceed with our contract by receiving a down payment, and then bill against that down payment in quarter-hour increments. If there are expenses for other services involved, we present them up front. Extras are never a surprise. We work with you as a partner or internal staff member, not as an outsider. Our focus is maintaining premium service with a focus on client confidentiality.
Our team can help you to prepare your tax filings for your organizations’ funds and make sure that your returns are compliant with federal and state legislation regarding educational systems and nonprofits. Our experienced tax planning staff can minimize tax risk and maximize tax incentives for your organization.
With our strength as tax planners, our experienced team can develop strategic initiatives that help to sustain future investments into your organizations, creating vast arrays of potential revenue. We also have experience with estate and gift tax planning. Capital campaigns can be developed to help facilitate greater amounts of tax-deductible donations and can help to accrue more capital for your organization.

Performing Due Diligence on a prospective donor or board member is essential towards ensuring a board that represents the culture of the organization. Through our comprehensive experience, we can provide intelligence that can help organizational leaders to make decisions on key members of their teams and provide a strong basis for donor support.
Nonprofit organizations want to align with other nonprofits that fit into their mission. It is often very hard to create and maintain strong alliances over time. Cendrowski’s team of advisors can help you form a large-scale investigation and research into the financials of the nonprofit you are seeking to align with and perform substantial due diligence to ensure that your organization is partnering with an organization who operates with integrity and shared goals and values.
Our team can help to create and develop proposals for federal and state grants, fundraising, and securing other financial means to support your organization. We work to create documents that accurately signify your organizations financial standing.
Through our dedicated alliances, we can help facilitate event planning initiatives that aim to accomplish your goals for your event. Implementing the goals you have for an event is difficult for most organizations and requires a lot of time and effort. Using proven strategies, we can help to meet and exceed your fundraising goals.
