MOCPA Has Raised $250,000 Toward $1 Million Goal to Establish Self-Sustaining Fund

In 2021, MOCPA's Educational Foundation launched a five-year campaign to raise $1 million in order to establish a self-sustaining endowed scholarship fund. That same year, a generous, anonymous MOCPA member made a $100,000 matching gift to MOCPA’s scholarship program, because other members collectively contributed $100,000 by the end of 2021. Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve that matching gift, but our work is not done yet! Please consider giving to help those following in your footsteps.

Thank you for considering a four-year commitment of making a tax-deductible gift, of which 100 percent goes directly to scholarships. Your gift will help ease the burden of rising tuition for accounting majors attending Missouri universities and secure the profession's future for years to come.

Why Donate?

The accounting profession is facing a significant shortage in the supply of accounting graduates and the number of accounting graduates passing the CPA exam. The below articles offer data and insights on the decline. MOCPA is working on numerous initiatives to strengthen the pipeline in Missouri, including the establishment of this endowed scholarship fund to facilitate the entry of more students into the profession.

“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.
