Our Leadership

Ellen Fontana began her own firm, Ellen Fontana CPA, LLC, in 2012. For 12 years Ellen Fontana had been the majority shareholder of Fontana CPAs.

Ellen is a certified public accountant with extensive experience in auditing, accounting, and consulting engagements, with over 20 years’ experience, including 7 years with an international firm (KPMG LLP). Ellen’s experience at KPMG ranged from managing not-for-profit client engagements to high profile Fortune 500 engagements.

Since 2000, Ellen has provided agencies, like your own, the experience offered by a large international firm and the benefits of a local firm. Ellen’s clients at Fontana CPAs and now at Ellen Fontana CPA, LLC are 99% not-for-profit (only client that is not a not for profit is a governmental taxing authority).

Our firm is licensed with the State of Florida to perform audits, compilations, or reviews of financial statements. Ellen complies with stringent Yellow Book standards required for individuals performing audits of agencies receiving federal assistance with a focus on nonprofit continuing education.

Nonprofits are not a side business for us; they are our only business. This specialization allows us to have an understanding of issues affecting nonprofits. We do not have to focus on several industries and individual and corporate tax returns as do other firms in the area.

At our firm, each client counts. As a result, we meet our deadlines and deliver on our promises. Because Ellen is involved in each engagement, you can expect a high level of quality for every service.
