Firm Overview

Your mission. Our focus.

Serving the needs of mission-focused organizations has not only been the focus, it’s been the mission of Zielinski Companies since the firm’s inception. What began as an audit and accounting practice in 1957 has evolved into a full-service financial, management, and consulting firm. Today, Zielinski Companies provides assistance in more than a dozen areas, including financial, fund development, property/facility, organizational/operational, and senior care.

Our clients are religious communities, ministries, faith-based institutions, monasteries, seminaries, and others with a call to mission. We take a sensitive approach to assisting clients with the “business” of managing their organizations and we understand the essential differences between mission-driven organizations and for-profit businesses.

Our consultants bring best-practice perspectives from a wide range of disciplines to guide mission-oriented organizations toward holistic solutions that both advance the mission and sustain the organization. We know that issues in a mission-focused environment – resources, staffing, property/facilities, funding, etc. – are complex and interconnected. Our CPAs, CFREs, LNHAs, MBAs, and PhDs combine industry best-practices with an understanding that mission, ministry, and values come first.

We’re often asked why we have grown and expanded into so many different areas over the years. The answer is simple: Our growth reflects the needs of the clients we serve. True, our work with religious communities, ministries, and others with a call to mission frequently takes us away from our home base. But sharing in the attainment of our clients’ vision is our reward. Actually, it’s more than a reward. It’s our mission.
