Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman’s reputation working with US-based non-governmental organizations is such that foreign-based NGOs including Norwegian People’s Aid, Oxfam and Accion Contre La Faim have also engaged our firm to conduct audits of their US-government funded projects.

In addition to audit, tax and financial consulting services, we also deliver outsourced accounting solutions to international organizations.

Our firm is active in non-governmental industry groups such as InsideNGO and InterAction through annual meetings, presentations and conference and workshop presentations, demonstrating our commitment to this industry and our stake in ensuring financial management success among its members.

Amy Boland and her GRF team make the annual audit as painless as possible!
