Cindy Bartholomew

CPA | Senior Manager

Cheerful. Warm. Inspired. This engaging tax whiz loves numbers and nonprofits alike.

Whether she’s backpacking in the Wallowas or sightseeing in Europe, Cindy’s quiet enthusiasm bubbles over into all that she does – including her work at Perkins. A tax senior manager, and leader of the nonprofit tax practice, Cindy’s passion for helping nonprofits navigate the complex world of IRS requirements and avoid risks to tax-exempt status, reflects her unwavering commitment to supporting those in need while promoting knowledge and justice. One look at the list of charities she’s involved with—including Jessie F. Richardson Foundation, Fly Fishing Collaborative, and Southminster Foundation —confirms this.

Helping individuals minimize tax and make wise financial decisions also checks all the boxes for Cindy, who loves to nurture longstanding client relationships.

Creativity and a love of travel abound in Cindy’s life. A proficient seamstress, Cindy thrived on creating one-of-a-kind Halloween costumes for her kids. Backpacking trips in central and eastern Oregon keep her in touch with nature, but at the top of her bucket list is a trip to Scotland and Ireland—a far cry from childhood road trips to every dam and power plant west of the Mississippi. That’s the family vaycay when your dad’s a civil engineer!
