Paving the Way for Tomorrow's CPAs

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.
