You surely know that not all students have the same opportunities or follow the same path. For that reason, the Foundation now dedicates a large portion of its budget to financial assistance and academic persistence scholarships. With this direction, the Foundation hopes to increase the number of young promising hopefuls and give them an opportunity to envision a thriving career.

Excellence and social involvement are values that characterize the CPA profession, which is why the Foundation is committed to recognizing and rewarding aspiring CPAs and professors who adopt these values.  But to achieve this, the Foundation needs your help!
Choose to help less privileged youth follow in your footsteps by taking the path toward the CPA designation. A small gesture on your part has the power to change lives.

Many ways to support the Foundation

Choose the method that suits you best!

  Donation with your annual membership dues payment

Are you a CPA or a candidate for the practice of the profession? The easiest way to give to the Foundation is to enter the amount of your choice in your annual mandatory declaration that you submit to the Order and make one single payment that includes your donation and annual membership dues.

  Monthly donation

If you can turn a few pennies at a time into dollars, you can change lives for a few dollars per month. Have you ever considered making a monthly donation to the Foundation? It is a simple and secure way to make payments over 12 months that will have a huge impact on the lives of many students!

  One-time donation

A one-time donation is an easy way to support the Foundation's actions and encourage young people to persevere in their studies

Make a donation by phone

Contact the Foundation’s team at 514 288-3256, ext. 2604 or 1 800 363.4688.

 Donation of shares

The transfer of shares entitles the donor to a full tax exemption on the capital gain on the shares, as well as a charitable tax receipt for the current value of the donated shares. The value of the donation is calculated on the basis of the market closing price on the day the certificate is transferred or, for electronic transfers, on the day the marketable shares are received by the Foundation's broker.

This type of gift is particularly advantageous if you own shares that have appreciated in value over the years.

For more information or to make a donation, contact the Foundation's team.

  In honour donation

An in honour donation is a creative way to recognize an important person who you feel had a positive impact on your career or a special event such as a loved-one passing the Common Final Examination (CFE) or obtaining the CPA designation.

Make your in honour donation online or contact the Foundation’s team for more details.

  Planned giving

Planned giving is a funding program that serves the interests of the registered charity. Its purpose is generally to create an endowment fund, the capital of which will be permanently preserved to ensure the survival of the charity and its activities. An endowment fund can be created through a variety of means, such as a gift of life insurance, bequests or gifts of assets.

If you would like to make this type of donation to the CPA Foundation, we recommend that you consult your legal and financial advisors to arrange your donation. However, it is essential that you contact us before your will is drafted by a notary so that your instructions in regard to the donation are followed. To do so, please send us an email at

Financial assistance scholarships are helpful and appreciated

"Becoming a CPA is a process that requires a lot of time, energy and money. I notice that more and more students have parental responsibilities and must balance work, family and studies to reach their goal. The scholarships awarded by the CPA Foundation are a great way to show them that we encourage them to continue their projects. I am convinced that these future CPAs will make us proud later because we helped them during their academic careers."
