Letter from the Executive Director

Written on Dec 06, 2017

Dear Donors and Friends,

One of the best parts of my job is attending Foundation programs and meeting students who have benefited from a Foundation scholarship or decided to pursue accounting as a result of a Foundation program. It’s so rewarding to know that the work that we’re doing is making a difference!

Consider these testimonials from students who participated in Foundation programs:

• “I am truly considering accounting now!”

• “I will strive to be an accountant and get my CPA.”

• “I already wanted to major in accounting and this experience confirmed it!”

• “This program makes me excited to go into the accounting field.”

Ohio CPA Foundation donors and volunteers made all of this possible!

So far in 2017, more than 800 donors – individuals, firms, corporations and foundations – have stepped up to support our mission of building the next generation of CPAs. Thank you! We are so grateful for your support!

If you are not a Foundation donor, I hope you’ll consider a gift to The Ohio CPA Foundation as you plan your charitable year-end giving. Your support is critical as we continue to attract talented students to the accounting major and careers in the CPA profession.   

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or if you’d like to learn more. You can reach me at kwest@ohiocpa.com or (800) 686-2727 ext. 2235.

Thank you for your support. Together, we are making a difference!


Karen West, CAE
Executive Director
