In honor of the 100th anniversary of the first Black CPA, the Black CPA Centennial Fund has been established for individuals and organizations who wish to support the 2021 anniversary campaign, as well as national scholarships and other programs dedicated to paving the way for Black individuals interested in pursuing the CPA credential.
Your donation will help honor the lives and legacies of the brave and talented individuals who have paved the way for diversity in the accounting and finance profession. With your support, the Black CPA Centennial organizing partners can ensure that this important anniversary is commemorated and celebrated throughout the United States and that we continue driving momentum, encouragement, and support for more Black people to enter the profession and become CPAs.
Donations to the Black CPA Centennial Fund are routed through our fiscal agent, the CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois, which is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The federal tax ID number is 36-4261924. Fundraising efforts will end on December 31, 2021 and the funds collected will be dispersed during the 2022 calendar year.
