Raffa Celebrates 30 Years of Service to Nonprofit Community​ ​​| News Release

Anniversary also Marks 2nd Year as a “Best of the Best” Firm

Washington, D.C. — Raffa celebrates its 30th year of service to nonprofits and socially responsible businesses this fall. The D.C.-based firm has grown from an audit and consulting firm to a broad professional services firm providing accounting, technology, human resources, investing, tax, fraud prevention and search and placement services to its growing list of clients. The firm is a partner to nonprofit leaders around the country.

“I founded Raffa in 1984 with the goal of providing the nonprofit community with best-of-the-best consulting services to help the entire sector perform at a higher level,” said Tom Raffa, founder and managing partner of Raffa. “I want my firm, my partners and my employees to be catalysts for positive change in the community – and we are fulfilling that mission.”

2014 also marks the 2nd consecutive year that Raffa has ranked on Inside Public Accounting’s (IPA’s) Best of the Best list​ and the 5th year on IPA’s Top 100 list of accounting firms. It is a mark of excellence and growth that the firm has strived to attain every year. The Best of the Best ranking is a mark of “exceptional client service, commitment to firmwide training, unique benefits for both staff and clients, and specialized client focus” according to IPA.

In addition to their client services, Raffa has built a firm dedicated to community which was recognized this year when Raffa earned B Corps certification. The firm has monthly “Denim Days” to raise money and awareness for issues important to their staff and has built a regular Learning Community of classes that are free to clients​. The classes offer continuing education credit and cover the full range of topics of interest to the nonprofit community including fundraising, technology, governance, fraud prevention and succession planning.

“Raffa employees chose to work here because of the type of clients we serve – those that are mission driven,” said Raffa. “We share our clients’ passions and are proud to be part of their teams.”
