Your Part-Time Controller was founded in 1993 by Eric Fraint, a Certified Public Accountant with a degree from The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. The concept of providing controller services on an as-needed basis came to life when Eric was asked by a business associate to step in part-time to handle the finances for his growing business. Eric soon realized that this was a natural solution for many small organizations. Today, our team of accounting professionals provides accounting, financial reporting, controllership services, and other financial-related services to almost 400 nonprofit clients. As Eric says, “I get excited by helping nonprofit organizations that are making a great difference in people's lives and their communities.”

Eric has an extensive background with nonprofits that are making significant differences. He has served on the Selection Committee for the 2013 Washington Post Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management. He has served as Treasurer or as a board member for numerous organizations including the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, the Grand Canyon Association, the Young Playwrights’ Theater of Washington, D.C., the Philadelphia Foundation, the Philadelphia Jewish Archives Center, the Jewish Publication Society, Creative Access, the Kellman Brown Academy, and Temple Beth Sholom. He has taught nonprofit financial management courses in Drexel University's Graduate Arts Administration program, La Salle University's Nonprofit Management Center, and the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania. He writes a blog about financial best practices for nonprofit organizations.


Jennifer Alleva came to Your Part-Time Controller in 2003 after spending 8 years in public accounting with Arthur Andersen and as CFO of a bank and a start-up leasing company. “I was intrigued by YPTC’s specialization in part-time outsourcing. It seemed like such a practical solution and an interesting opportunity. Later, I realized the added benefit of working with nonprofit organizations is the feeling that I am furthering their missions through my work,” she says.

“I was also intrigued by the challenge of growing a business like Your Part-Time Controller to make it more of a force in the nonprofit sector,” she adds. When Jen came on board, YPTC had 11 employees; today, the firm has grown dramatically and expanded its presence from the Philadelphia and South Jersey region to New York City, Washington, D.C. and Houston, Texas. “We’re big enough to have the resources to help our client organizations, and small enough to provide personal attention and customized services,” she says.

“I started at YPTC as a part-time employee when my children were younger. I am thrilled that YPTC offers a wonderful work-life balance for all staff, one of the many reasons we have repeatedly been voted as a ‘Best Place to Work’ in Philadelphia and Washington.”

Jen is a graduate of the Boston College School of Management with a B.S. in accounting and is a CPA. In addition to her work with nonprofit clients, Jen has a background in volunteer and board service with many community organizations, including fundraising for Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. She serves on the Board of Directors of Catholic Partnership Schools in Camden, N.J., and has a background in board service with many other community organizations including the Junior League of Philadelphia, Junior Achievement, and  the Nonprofit Development Center of South Jersey.

“The most rewarding work in my career has been at Your Part-Time Controller,” she says. “I love that we are able to help nonprofit organizations that are in trouble and turn them around as well as support all of our clients in their quest to make the world a better place.”
