The FICPA Educational Foundation is a charitable nonprofit organization that works to ensure the integrity and success of the accounting profession in Florida. Established in 1959, FICPA raises scholarship funds for Florida fourth and fifth-year accounting students.
FICPA has provided more than $3 million in scholarships and education programs to support Florida accounting students. Through the generous donations of FICPA members, the Foundation continues to provide more than $200,000 a year in scholarships to assist Florida’s future CPA leaders.
Last year, FICPA Educational Foundation awarded more than $150,000 to deserving accounting students. Each of our fundraising events is a fun way for you to contribute to a worthy cause!

Since 1989, the FICPA Educational Foundation has hosted a 5K/10K race in South Florida. This year, we will celebrate the 25th Anniversary on Wednesday, April 16, 2014. The FICPA Educational Foundation will host the 1040K, in Coconut Grove, Fla.
The annual event has tremendous local support and has become a great experience for families and co-workers to get together for fun and exercise while contributing to a very worthwhile scholarship fund. It is important to continue this great support and we hope you join us again for our Silver Anniversary race!
