Finance
Corporate F/A/C/T/S/  is rare among consulting firms involved in non-profit accounting, we bring our extensive financial background to every client’s organization, project and real estate financial challenges we address.

This grounding in financial reality results in a strategic plan with a strong likelihood of success.

Consulting
Corporate F/A/C/T/S/ has decades of experience as community development practitioners for national organizations such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC).
