Giving Back to Your Profession


The AICPA offers its members the opportunity to support the profession and the public it serves through the programs and services of the AICPA Foundation, AICPA Benevolent Fund and AICPA Political Action Committee (PAC). The Benevolent Fund ( www.aicpa.org/members/ ) helps members and their families through difficult financial times. The Foundation ( www.aicpa.org/members/ ) was formed to advance the science of accountancy and accounting education. The PAC ensures that contributing members of the accounting profession have a strong voice in our nation’s capitol. (Contact Vicki Simmons at 202-434-9223 or vsimmons@aicpa.org for more information on the PAC.) Members are under no obligation to make financial contributions, but it is through their generosity that these programs thrive.
