The FICPA offers you several methods to assist with promoting the CPA profession throughout Florida. Through your generous financial contributions, accounting students receive financial aid and political candidates are made aware of the issues vital to the profession. For more information on all opportunities for contribution, see below.
The Florida CPA Political Action Committee, Inc. is the means by which members of the Florida Institute of CPAs (FICPA) can help elect business-minded candidates and adopt issues important to the CPA profession.
The Florida CPA/PAC is an entity completely separate from the FICPA. The Florida CPA/PAC is supported solely by the voluntary contributions of members of the FICPA and others. The Florida CPA/PAC is registered as a corporation with the Florida Division of Corporations and as a Committee of Continuous Existence with the Division of Elections within the Florida Department of State.
FICPA Educational Foundation
The FICPA’s Educational Foundation provides approximately $150,000 in scholarships annually to fourth- and fifth-year accounting majors enrolled in Florida colleges and universities.
Your Educational Foundation works to ensure the integrity and success of the accounting profession in Florida. Founded in 1959 as the R. Warner Ring Educational Foundation, it has distributed more than $2 million to colleges and accounting students around the state. Educational Foundation scholarships put all Florida schools on an equal footing, assisting students in pursuing their degrees at any college or university in the state that has an accredited accounting program.
The quality of tomorrow’s accountants is vitally important. Although students are more prepared to become CPAs than ever before, the financial burden of a college education has dramatically increased, especially with the required fifth year. The FICPA Educational Foundation provides scholarships to help offset these ever-increasing educational costs for accounting students at Florida’s colleges and universities.
