If you would provide your location, it would help direct you to resources. My firm services Tampa or Boston so could help you there.

If you don't need them to be there in person I suggest an online resource like They can access your financials online, they would be able to support your business manager when needed and you can most likely get a more experienced consultant.

Would welcome a chance to talk with you further. I've spent the last 8 years working as a retained CFO for a number of nonprofits. Depending on your needs and location, I may not be the right fit, but happy to help you sort through your options.

As far as finding someone, look on line, maybe ask your CPA, Banker, out IT service, or Insurance broker if they know someone (they all interact regularly with CFO's). On rate, expect to pay from $100/hour and up. $150-200 rates are not uncommon, but maybe a little high in my opinion for regular work like you are offering. Good luck.
