Since 2012, the Michigan School of Psychology has outsourced accounting services to FOI. As a small, non-profit organization, these services have provided essential expertise, separation of function and effectiveness of all accounting, banking, and financial procedures. This partnership has afforded a full complement of financial personnel and resources that would have otherwise been unattainable.

They really see us and work collaboratively with the staff and the Board of Trustees to ensure effective operations. There is a high level of expertise available within FOI; the CFO and controller consistently provide creative and up-to-date recommendations on best financial practices. Our school has been in good hands with FOI – they are a partner in our success!”
Michigan Colleges Alliance (MCA) is a nationally leading consortium of private universities and colleges. It has partnered with Financial One for the past seven years for all of its accounting and financial management needs. Without question, this relationship has been one of the most productive in my nearly 15 years as MCA president. Financial One literally has become an extension of our operational staff, seamlessly integrating with MCA team members to ensure flawless financial tracking, management, and reporting. The company’s stellar group of professionals, coupled with its knowledge of our business and close client engagement, has allowed MCA to allocate minimal resources to internal financial oversight, focusing instead on core missional activities–so important to smaller, non-profit organizations. As a senior executive in the private higher education sector, I routinely recommend Financial One to MCA peer organizations throughout the country, who equally praise the company’s significant impact on their productivity.
