The CPA Education Foundation is "stepping 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 new initiative, “Stepping Up,” the Foundation is shifting 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 Stepping Up is to help promising Alberta high school students overcome barriers in order to achieve their goals of successful careers in business and accounting.

And we need the help of Alberta CPAs to achieve that goal.

With the support of CPAs, the Foundation has 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.

Wondering how you can help? Donate to help fund our Stepping Up programs.

The CPA Education Foundation, a registered charity, is the charitable arm of the CPA profession in Alberta. Its work is funded by Alberta CPAs and other donors. By making a donation to the Foundation’s Stepping Up project, you can make a difference in the futures of many Alberta high school students. Tax receipts are issued for all donations, and 100% of donations made to the Stepping Up initiative will go to project programming.

 

Dave Bodnarchuk Challenges YOU to Donate to Stepping Up

Dave BodnarchukDave Bodnarchuk FCPA, FCA is no stranger to the Foundation. He is currently serving as the Chair of the Foundation Board, and has seen first-hand the incredible impact of the Foundation. That's why Dave has graciously stepped up to become the campaign’s first major donor.

Until December 31, 2019, Dave will be matching all donations made to the Stepping Up project up to $30,000. He is challenging all CPAs across the province to support this worthwhile investment in the future of the profession.

“There are many high school students who need help in planning their post-secondary studies and future careers. As CPAs, we can stand up and show them the path to becoming leaders, just as one did for me,” says Dave.

How to Donate

The goal of the CPA Education Foundation is to raise $175,000 over the next two years for the Stepping Up high school project, with 100% of all Stepping Up donations designated for programming.
