Make a donation

Financial assistance • Academic persistence • I believe, I donate!

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 today to help less privileged youth follow in your footsteps by taking the path toward the CPA designation. Your donation may not change your life, but it definitely has the power to change the life of a young person.

In honour donations thank an inspiring person or recognize a special event

An in honour donation is a creative and meaningful 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.

For more details, contact the Foundation’s team or make your in honour donation online.

Transactions  Planned giving

Planned giving is a fundraising program in which donations are arranged to serve the interests of the registered charity, in keeping with the individual donor’s personal, financial, and tax situation.

Planned giving is often used to create an endowment fund with capital that is maintained permanently to ensure the survival of the charity and the continuance of its activities. An endowment fund may be created through various planned giving techniques and donations, including life insurance policies, bequests and 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, lawyer or financial advisor so that your instructions in regard to the donation are followed. To do so, please send us an email at fondation@cpaquebec.ca.

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."
