Our 1:7 ratio means more 1:1

Our ratio of executive team shareholders to staff is unusually low for a full-service regional firm: 1:7 or lower, depending on the service or industry practice group. It means you get the direct, involved attention of our top talent from day one. They proactively offer you strategy, feedback and ideas all along the way.

Empowering nonprofit growth is our passion. Let us prove it to you.

Don't take our work for it

“Our office and family have worked with Perkins for over 20 years. We know that the firm is always looking out for our best interest. They are creative, but always approach our issues with integrity and focus on our specific situation.”

Tony Garvey

“I have worked with Perkins & Co for decades. They take the time to learn each client, ask questions as the business or personal environment changes, and make supportive and proactive tax suggestions. Everyone I have worked with is available for consultations and professional support. I know that they will always go the extra mile for their clients.”

Now, let's get personal.

Our nonprofit team dedicates hours of personal time serving as board members and committee members for local nonprofit organizations. As a firm, Perkins & Co feels giving back to the community means helping to foster its growth.
