AICPA Responds to National Crisis

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has established a fund for victims of the recent national tragedy.

The new fund, CPAs in Support, is designed to help CPAs, CPA firms, and others affected by last week's tragic events. In addition, the AICPA Benevolent Fund helps AICPA members and their families who are in financial difficulty as a result of serious illness, accident, death, and other major misfortunes.

CPAs in need of assistance are encouraged to contact the AICPA's Dale Atherton at 201-938-3253. Ms. Atherton is also available to answer questions about the funds.

Those who wish to make contributions to either fund should send a check, payable to either fund, to:
