AICPA Benevolent Fund Reps to Visit Affected

Areas This Week

Fund administrators Kati McDaniels and Melissa Parker will be visiting flood-affected members this week to answer questions about the eligibility requirements for receiving assistance and the application process. If you have questions or would like to schedule a meeting (schedule permitting), email Kati at (You do not need to meet with them in order to apply for assistance.)

The AICPA Benevolent Fund was established in 1933 to help AICPA members through temporary periods of financial difficulty brought on by natural disasters or serious illness, an accident, or the death of the primary source of family income. If you or someone you know are in need of assistance, visit the Benevolent Fund Resource Center, contact Kati, or call 866.527.2228.

Other Resources

  • We are maintaining a list of firms that need office space, and firms who have office space to share – we want to connect members to members. Check our Disaster Assistance Forum to see what space is available, or to post what you can offer. The online community also is a great way to connect with each other on flood-related issues. Feel free to reply to an existing discussion or start a discussion of your own.
  • We have some office furniture and supplies we can donate to CPAs in need: office chairs, metal shelving, a sofa sleeper, trundle bed frame, a variety of office supplies (paper, binders, pens, etc.). Email Diana Johnston for available supplies.
  • We have a comprehensive list of Disaster Recovery Resources on our website and update that regularly. We understand internet service may be spotty in some areas. Be sure to check our website under "News and Tax Alerts" for the latest on LDR and IRS filing extensions and disaster declarations.

If you have any questions regarding this release, please contact Linda Babin.
