As the most recent and only repeat winner of Crain’s Detroit Business’ Best Managed Nonprofit Award, Accounting Aid Society is well-positioned for exceptional and transformational growth. Both during Covid and into the post-Covid environment, and with a highly targeted strategy for diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels of the organization and service to the community, our board has been positioning Accounting Aid for expansion of our unique mission. Today, we are seeking a President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) who, in close coordination with our board of directors, can successfully lead our team in pursuit of this goal. The new CEO is expected to spend significant time ensuring the long-term viability of the organization through the continued reach into the metro Detroit philanthropic, corporate and government arenas. The CEO is responsible for ensuring the successful day-to-day management, of Accounting Aid, including the attainment of all financial and mission-related goals. The CEO provides strategic leadership and vision to the senior staff members, their teams and the more than 300 volunteers that work tirelessly on behalf of the organization, ensuring that they have the resources and support necessary to advance the objectives of Accounting Aid and to achieve their goals. Even during the peak of the COVID pandemic in 2020 Accounting Aid continued serving thousands of clients, developing innovative remote service models to deliver millions of dollars of tax refunds without compromising safety.
In 2022, Accounting Aid Society will celebrate its 50th year of providing critical services to the metropolitan Detroit community. With the vision of creating an economy that works for everyone, Accounting Aid provides tax assistance and other services to promote the economic self-sufficiency of middle to low income families, seniors and others in need through programs, volunteerism and partnerships.
Accounting Aid Society’s effective service delivery model, along with the agency’s history of successful collaborations and its commitment to addressing poverty in southeast Michigan, exemplify the agency’s strong leadership and fiscal responsibility. These accomplishments are why the agency has won some of the region’s most prestigious awards, including the 2020 and 2008 Crain’s Best Managed Nonprofit, runner-up for the 2009 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Service Award, and the 2012 Detroit Free Press Shining Light Regional Cooperation Award.
Led by a board of directors drawn from metro Detroit’s corporate, governmental and philanthropic communities, the organization operates with an annual budget of $3.4 million. In 2020, the agency utilized 325 volunteers to provide services to more than 22,000 households in Southeast Michigan for a $40 million impact to our region.
