JMT Consulting Group was founded in 1991 by Jacqueline Tiso (former nonprofit financial and current JMT CEO) to help nonprofits achieve their mission of helping others.

From the software solutions we sell to the services we provide, everything we do is focused on helping nonprofits achieve their goals. But this focus and commitment would mean little, were it not for the decades of expertise that JMT brings to each client engagement.


Our project personnel includes CPAs and holders of numerous technical certifications, all with a background in nonprofit and local government agencies.

They bring a wealth of knowledge to each project, which not only includes the highest level of software expertise, but also experience as accountants, fundraisers, and technology professionals working in a nonprofit organization. This allows JMT to use our collective experience to mitigate risk, anticipate needs and make holistic recommendations based on the broad range of projects we have successfully delivered.
