Since its establishment in 1922, the vision of the AICPA Foundation has been to advance the science of accountancy and accounting education. Guided by a core ideology and principles, the Foundation is committed to supporting and growing the next generation of CPAs through three primary focuses.

    A good education is the gateway to a successful and meaningful career.

    Helping the best and brightest achieve their goals and become future CPA leaders.

    Increasing the representation of minorities in the profession is key to continued cultural growth in the profession.
