The CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois, the Illinois CPA Society’s charitable partner, provides life-changing scholarships and training programs to deserving accounting students across the state. Funded solely by voluntary donations, these programs are geared toward attracting students to the CPA profession and supporting students who alone cannot keep up with the costs associated with completing their education and becoming a CPA. The CPA Endowment Fund offers numerous different awards, each with slightly differing criteria.
The CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois is a 501 (c)(3) organization formed in 1998 as the charitable partner of the Illinois CPA Society to ensure ongoing funding for scholarship and outreach programs designed to support diverse and deserving accounting students and future CPAs. Annually the Fund awards approximately $250,000 in scholarships and outreach support to more than 275 of the most diverse and deserving accounting students across the state.
