Our Values

It was initially their shared Christian world-view that brought them together.  In January of 2000, Richard Shafer and Douglas MacRae brought a combined forty years of professional experience together to form the accounting partnership of Shafer & MacRae, CPAs. The mission of Shafer & MacRae, CPAs is to provide accounting, tax and consulting services that focus on their clients' individual needs. They strive to render these services in a manner that is consistent with the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. Both partners have an extensive history of community involvement in the Temecula Valley. Rick has served the community through local service organizations, youth sports coaching and over 16 years as a trustee for the Temecula Valley Unified School District. Doug has also served through local service organizations, youth sports programs and missions work. Both partners are active members of local churches.
