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. 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.
