who we are

The CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois is a 501 (c)(3) organization formed in 1998 to ensure ongoing funding for Illinois CPA Society scholarship and outreach programs. 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 rising costs of the educational requirements necessary to become a CPA.

what we do

Annually the Fund awards approximately $190,000 in scholarships and outreach programs to more than 150 of the most diverse and deserving accounting students across the state.


how you can help

Every year, the Fund has more qualified applicants than awards to give. Your gift will help close that gap.
