The Nevada CPA Foundation for Education and Research was founded in 1969.
Since 1970, it has awarded funding for scholarships every year to Nevada’s universities and community colleges to support and encourage students in their study of accounting and in their pursuit of the CPA license. The Foundation also makes contributions to accounting student organizations to support other accounting education related events. In addition, the Foundation has provided financial support for NVCPA educational endeavors, such as our financial literacy efforts.
Who Provides the Foundation’s Financial Support?
NVCPA Members make individual tax deductible contributions to the Foundation, generally in connection with their annual dues billing, though contributions may be made throughout the year. The NVCPA also holds fundraisers to help support Foundation activities.
Who benefits from our Foundation?
Students throughout Nevada benefit from donations made to the Foundation. Below are examples of recent recipients of scholarship funds:
“…to receive this scholarship is a huge help to me as I finish my college education. I hope I will be able to give back to the profession one day."
“…I will be pursing my Masters in Accounting this fall and your scholarship will have a serious positive impact on my ability to reach tis goal. I plan to sit for the CPA exam and I cannot wait to join the professional accounting community.”
