CPAs Helping One Another


Since the 1930s the AICPA Benevolent Fund has aided members facing medical and financial hardships when personal savings and government assistance are limited or unavailable. The fund assists with the cost of medications, therapy and/or daily expenses. At least twice a year the board of trustees of the Benevolent Fund assesses the ongoing needs of fund recipients based on updated information provided by current and new recipients. To learn more about the Benevolent Fund’s work, contact Elizabeth Cich of the AICPA at 201-938-3490 or ecich@aicpa.org .

The AICPA Benevolent Fund also is accepting donations, which are deductible from your 2003 taxes if made by December 31, to help it continue providing financial assistance to needy Institute members and their families. Contributions can be sent to the AICPA Cashier, Harborside Financial Center, 201 Plaza Three, Jersey City, New Jersey 07311.
