MEET SOME OF OUR CLIENTS
Matt Dapolito, CPA
Matthew Dapolito, CPA, has extensive experience in every aspect of nonprofit accounting, auditing, and exempt organization taxation issues. In addition, he is highly knowledgeable about the design of internal and financial reporting controls and regularly advises nonprofits on board governance and federal funding guidelines and regulations. He has conducted numerous audits in accordance with OMB Circular A133 and has assisted his clients in developing systems to properly account for and comply with federal funding sources requirements.
Prior to founding NonProfit Fiscal Management, LLC (NPFM) in July 2011, Matthew was a partner at an accounting firm that specialized in providing audit, tax and business advisory services exclusively to not-for-profit organizations. While in that role, Matthew developed a financial services outsourcing model designed to address many of the common challenges and opportunities that small-to-medium-sized nonprofits typically face. This pioneering and cost-effective approach enables organizations to leverage their limited accounting department budgets to implement the same sophisticated financial systems utilized by organizations many times their size. With access to CFO-level expertise, these nonprofits and their boards enjoy a level of strategic service and support that would otherwise be beyond their reach.
Matthew established NPFM to make this unique financial services delivery model, which he has been providing to a growing number of organizations in the New York Tri-state area for over 10 years, available on a broader scale. Some of his current clients include New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, Advocates for Children of New York, the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, Make the Road New York, and the US Squash Association.
In 2009, Matthew was selected, along with a major New York City law firm, to join a task force of community and labor leaders and funders from the private and public sectors to work with the former management of NY Acorn to rebuild this vital community organizing nonprofit from the ground up. This unique opportunity allowed him to develop and implement “best- practices” in financial reporting and internal control systems that gave private and public funders the confidence to invest in the now-thriving New York Communities for Change.
Matthew also shares his nonprofit expertise with his local community. He served on the board of directors of United Way of Long Island for over 10 years. In his capacity as a member of the board’s executive committee, as well as the chairman of the steering committee, he was instrumental in implementing safeguards to ensure that contributors’ donations are awarded only to financially sound and viable partner agencies.

Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, Inc.
Nonprofits struggle on many fronts, but a professional and caring accounting firm is central to our peace of mind and our ability to build organizational capacity. NPFM is dedicated to providing professional services that advance community needs.
Matt Dapolito of NonProfit Fiscal Management took our financial operations from a situation with limited controls and structure, and no ability to analyze and plan, to where we are today. We now have a fully integrated, complex but accessible, financial system and structure that provides the timely and accurate reporting that we need to manage our growing Association. Since the financials of any organization are the lifeblood of a healthy operation, the business value NPFM provides is incomparable since their services are able to scale from day-to-day bookkeeping all the way to high level strategic insight depending on the evolving needs of small to medium-sized non-profits. I would recommend NPFM to any organization that needs sophisticated financial management services.
U.S. Squash, Inc.
Matt Dapolito and his team at NonProfit Fiscal Management have brought our association a stronger, simpler financial management process, as well as high-quality insight on the more difficult financial reporting challenges. Matt is accessible, responsive, and works well both with our association staff and our board.
The Society of Corporate Secretaries and Other Governance Professionals
I have had the advantage and pleasure of working with Matt and his team in two quite distinct contexts; in both cases NPFM has played an essential role. Matt helped lead a well-established mid-size legal services organization I directed on an interim basis through the unexpected loss of our executive director, who had previously shared CFO responsibilities with Matt. And currently Matt is working with the non-profit start-up I direct to build financial systems from the ground up. NPFM’s work has been forward-looking and very context-responsive; I recommend Matt and his team highly.
