Donors to the CPA Education Foundation have "stepped up" to help high school students achieve their career goals

The CPA Education Foundation’s primary mandate revolves around raising awareness of, and creating access to, careers in accounting for young Albertans. With its “Stepping Up” initiative, the Foundation shifted its focus onto Alberta high school students – those Albertans who are beginning to set their sights on their dream careers.

The Foundation’s goal for the Stepping Up project was to help promising Alberta high school students overcome barriers in order to achieve their goals of successful careers in business and accounting.

And Alberta CPAs stepped up, helping the Foundation achieve their two-year fundraising goal of $150,000, with 100% of all donations designated for programming.

With the support of CPAs, the Foundation designed the Stepping Up high school project to fulfill the following aims:

  • Establish new scholarships for high school students entering the business faculty at a post-secondary institution in Alberta;
  • Create physical and digital resources that help students learn about the profession and the possibilities that a career as a CPA has to offer;
  • Increase the Foundation’s capacity for outreach into Alberta high schools, especially rural high schools.
