Dear Colleagues,

SCACPA and the membership

The SCACPA Educational Fund exists to advance and promote accounting education. Each year scholarships are given to well-deserving students from across the state. The funds we give are a result of established endowments as well as annual donations from members of SCACPA. Many thanks to the hundreds of CPAs from across South Carolina who give annually through their membership renewal contribution check-off. This brochure is designed to inform members of SCACPA about your Educational Fund, what it does and who supports our efforts. It is no secret that costs for everything are on the rise and college tuition and related expenses have not been immune to these increases. The current economic downturn is also not helping matters. Many students are finding it challenging to meet the financial obligation that achieving higher education creates. As we all have seen, investments have taken quite a hit in the last six months leaving many students without enough funds to pursue their education. Our Educational Fund’s work becomes all the more critical in times like these.
