How can I get my nonprofit an independent audit pro bono? Is it possible?

I work on a wonderful nonprofit that runs on a very small budget, ~$120K annually. We are really really tight on funds right now and can barely meet our obligations, so we are looking at grant applications to find more sources of funds. Many grants require an independent audit of finances to be eligible, and this is something we've wanted to do for a long time because it is of course a great practice for all nonprofits. However, we just can't afford to pay much if anything at all. Is there any way to find people who do such audits pro bono? I imagine they are hard to come by. Is there a website or organization for this? Might I have any luck by "cold calling" accountants about this?? Your advice much appreciated.
