Mark Eby
President/CEO Kansas Humane Society
“Mainstream Nonprofit Solutions assisted Kansas Humane Society during a time of crisis, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.  I’m not sure how we would have been able to bridge the gap and ensure our finances were properly maintained, without their assistance.  I appreciate their professionalism and ability to adapt. They were the perfect solution for us.”

Carmen Leeds
Board President Camp Alexander
“Mainstream Nonprofit Solutions has given Camp Alexander the stability and consistency we have needed the last two years.  Without full-time employees to operate camp, Mainstream Nonprofit Solutions is a constant for us year round.  Their staff is accommodating to the unique needs our summer camp, with an in-season demanding load and out-of-season light load.  We appreciate their professional and helpful staff and we consider them part of our team to ensure Camp Alexander is ready to give the children of Lyon County a wonderful experience in the great outdoors.”

Their staff were able to quickly get up to speed on our accounting processes, and we did not miss a beat. I was extremely impressed with their professionalism, regular communication, and attention to detail. I would encourage any non-profit organization to partner with MNS!”
