For our commitment to serving our community, the California Society of CPAs (CalCPA) named us the recipient of its 2016 Public Service Award for Firms.  CalCPA annually presents the award to recognize a firm for its public service contributions at the local, state or national level.

In 2015, our employees participated in over 1,680 hours of community service and were board members of over 25 local non-profits, including Love Modesto, the Stanislaus Community Foundation, United Samaritans, Historic State Theatre and Community Hospice.   Beyond board participation, we sponsor over 60 community related events that support our United Way, Community Hospice, Salvation Army and numerous worthwhile non-profits benefiting our community.

At Grimbleby Coleman CPA’s, public service is the way we connect with our colleagues, clients and the community we serve, without it we wouldn’t be the “people behind the numbers.” #gccommunity

Dear friends and clients,

Thank you for putting your trust in us to provide your tax and advisory services. These are rare and unusual circumstances; but be assured, we are committed to providing continued services and support over the coming weeks.

To lessen our societal impact, as well as to protect the well-being of you, our clients, and our team, we ask that the majority of our communications be electronic or over the phone (we have rescheduled all meetings to be handled in this way).

At this time, our office is closed to the public. You may drop off paper documents in our mail slot. We strongly encourage you to use our electronic collaboration tools for securely scanning and sending tax documents and we have the necessary data security in place to ensure security and privacy.
