MOCPA’s Educational Foundation Board is proud to announce that a generous, anonymous MOCPA member has made a $100,000 matching gift to MOCPA’s scholarship program, because other members collectively contributed $100,000 in 2021. Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this goal! The society has a long-term goal of attaining $1 million over the next five years. A gift in any amount will collectively make a significant difference to those following in your footsteps. One hundred percent of these tax-deductible contributions will go toward the corpus on an endowed scholarship fund that will ease the burden of rising tuition for accounting majors attending Missouri universities and help secure the profession's future for years to come.

“Your support and this scholarship go a long way in covering college expenses— especially in the unprecedented times we have been experiencing. This year, I will be focusing on obtaining my Master of Accountancy degree, serving as a graduate teaching research assistant, and sitting for the CPA exam. I am thankful for these growth-driving experiences and the generous MOCPA donors who financially support me and provide me with these opportunities. This scholarship will help ease the burden of college expenses and is priceless in allowing me to focus on my studies as opposed to costs.”—Caleb Bruemmer, MOCPA scholarship recipient
