School maintenance is where we begain over 20 years ago. SFM continues to provide private schools the resources and expertise necessary maintain an effective and efficient maintenance division.


Facility Management for your Non-Profit

SFM has partnered with non-profits since 1998. We understand the unique challenges, as well as advantages, non-profits face in regard to their facility maintenance and maintenance needs.


Why non-profit organizations?

Aren’t the facility needs of most types of industries the same as the facility needs for non-profits? The truth is... yes. But SFM’s singular focus is not about the buildings. It is about the people who occupy the buildings. Non-profit organizations usually share very similar cultures, and the characteristics of these cultures are different from the typical for-profit world.

SFM knows those cultures. We share the desire to make a difference in the world, and we understand that every mission benefits from professionalism and good stewardship.

Here are some of the typical characteristics of the non-profit world:
  • Owner occupied facilities
  • The buildings and grounds are often the largest asset on the balance sheet
  • There is a strong commitment to long term stewardship of the buildings
  • There is a board of volunteers who drive this long term commitment
  • The administration and staff are committed to the mission
  • There is a mission to make a difference in the world

Why Outsource with SFM?

  • Flexible staffing options
  • Maintain quality control
  • Maintain budgetary oversite
  • Eliminate your human resource burden
  • Change the culture of your facility department
