Financial management focused almost exclusively on Canada’s
non-profit, charitable and social enterprises.

Purpose

Humanity Financial Management Inc. builds the capacity and credibility of Canada’s not-for-profit, charitable and social enterprises through innovative internal accounting and financial management support services.

We are one of a few chartered accounting firms in Canada that focus on the NFPO sector. We deliberately specialize in this field because we share the same values as our customers: we want to help make the world a better place.

Philosophy

We asked not-for-profit stakeholders a lot of questions when we began. And we’ve been asked a lot of questions, too. After many conversations with a wide array of individuals, we determined our guiding principles to be as follows:

  • Be cost-effective: we recognize the constraints that our customers face; we also embrace the challenge. Every customer benefits from innovative financial management solutions with long-term, lasting value. For example, our services are always quoted up-front, billed on a fixed price basis and fully guaranteed for the length of our engagement.
  • Be credible: we apply the best practices in NFPO financial management, accounting, strategic planning, operations management, regulatory procedures, reporting requirements, tax and bookkeeping. And we have deep experience working with a full range of NFPO stakeholders.
  • Be caring: the needs, priorities and principles of NFPOs can be vastly different from those private and public sector. We understand the unique nuances of not-for-profit organizations, and are sensitive to them.

Our Team

GORDON HOLLEY, CPA, CA, CPB – CO FOUNDER, PRESIDENT & CEO

gordon

Gordon Holley is the President and CEO of Humanity Financial Management Inc. As a CPA, CA for almost 25 years now, Gordon loves helping individuals and organizations that are trying to make the world a better place.

In his role at Humanity Financial, Gordon sees the stress and anxiety produced by finances and financial reporting for many not-for-profit-organizations (NFPOs), charity board members, and senior staff. He excels at providing financial oversight to small to mid-size NFPOs and charities to help them better manage their internal finances and financial budgeting and reporting. Ultimately, his company hopes to instil confidence and credibility in organizations by streamlining their internal financial management so that they can focus their energies on their programs.

Gordon has chosen to work in the NFP sector because he believes that it has not only the biggest opportunities for improvement, but includes the added bonus of being filled with the people he enjoys working with the most. He says, “Life is too short not to feel like you are making a meaningful contribution and working with people that you really enjoy.” He is happy to leverage his company’s financial expertise to make a meaningful contribution to people and organizations that are trying to make the world a better place and finds inspiration from the individuals who work tirelessly for their causes. “Many people think that working with numbers is dry and boring,” he says, “but I ultimately work with people – and I love it when I can make their lives easier and less stressful. Working with numbers allows me to do that and I love it.”

"The North Shore Division contracted with Gordon Holley
at Humanity Financial initially to improve the financial management
and reporting structure of the organization, and hired him later
as a part-time controller and CFO to help us through a staffing
transition. Not only did he provide expert advice on accounting
and delivered on our initial goals, he provided great insight
and recommendations on board governance, roles and policy
which was value added for our growing organization.

His professional, personable, knowledgeable and collaborative
style make him a pleasure to work with and we will continue to
work with Humanity Financial into the future."
