Educational Institutions

Higher education and private schools face many of the same challenges as other businesses and financial management is oftentimes more diverse and complex. A large pool of revenue sources such as endowments, restricted contributions, alternative investments, grants, student financial aid, and so on, means there are complicated regulatory and compliance considerations. In addition, there are capital improvements, property, and facilities to manage.

Our team works with numerous colleges, universities, and private schools across Colorado and the U.S. We collaborate with the organization’s stakeholders to provide clarity in the management and reporting of revenue sources and growing infrastructure.
