Scholarships Give to Grow

Each year Louisiana CPAs Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, offers scholarships to accounting majors in Louisiana. These scholarships are funded through private donations from members like you. With recent and future expected budget cuts to TOPS, and rising education expenses, your financial support of the scholarship program is needed more than ever.

Scholarship recipients are selected through LCPA’s annual application process and carefully reviewed by members of LCPA’s Career Awareness Committee. Applicants are judged on accounting and overall GPA, essay, and letters of recommendation. Scholarships are awarded in the spring.

Support our future CPAs with a tax-deductible donation that works best for you. Your charitable contribution when combined with others' adds up to much needed financial support for students!

  • A one-time donation
  • An annual donation with your membership renewal
  • A named scholarship to honor a person or firm/business
  • Planned giving through your will or trust
  • Everytime you shop online at AmazonSmile.com

One-time Individual Donation

Tax-deductible donations to the Foundation can be made anytime, 24/7 on our secure online contribution form. Small donations can have a big impact.

Annual Donation

When you join or renew your membership each year, you'll have the option to make your tax-deductible donation to the Education Foundation. You can select the suggested amount of $10, or contribute more or less based on what fits best.

Named Scholarship

Contribute $1500 or more and you can name your own scholarship. It could be named after your firm/company, or in honor of a loved one or someone who inspired you. The total annual amount you give is passed directly to the student — the Foundation does not retain any of the contribution.

For a tax-deductible, charitable contribution of $1,500 or more, your scholarship will be categorized as: “The (your company’s name) Scholarship.”

  • Your named scholarship can be created as a one-time gift or as a continuing gift — there's no long-term commitment.
  • You will enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are helping a future accounting professional pursue a meaningful career.
  • You will be recognized on the LCPA website for your named scholarship.
  • You will be recognized in Lagniappe magazine (with a circulation of 7000+).

Planned Giving

Consider remembering the Louisiana Education Foundation in your will or trust and create a legacy for a profession that has served you well.
