The mission of the Foundation is to provide scholarships to accounting students in the state of Florida. We encourage FICPA members to become involved and active with activities that help us provide scholarships by serving a one-year term on a Foundation Committee. Foundation Committees are a great way to get connected and give back to the future of the profession. All committees meet via conference call, and members are provided a toll-free phone number to connect to the calls. Committee members are not required to meet in-person, but committee members should plan on attending all conference calls and any event or activity planned by the committee. Here is a list of current 2016-17 Foundation Committees, please find a committee that matches your interests and experience:

Endowment and Planned Giving

 

This committee is responsible for management of current Foundation endowments, developing new endowments, promoting planned giving opportunities and the new firm scholarship program. FICPA members interested in this committee should have experience and interest in assisting the Foundation with promoting endowments, planned giving, retirement, bequests and charitable annuities and trusts. The Endowment & Planned Giving Committee plans to meet quarterly via conference call in 2016-17.
