The East Texas CPA Educational Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary purpose is to provide educational scholarships to accounting students based upon financial need and academic achievement.

ETCPA holds an annual golf tournament as our major fundraiser on behalf of the Educational Fund, and all proceeds after direct tournament expenses are used to fund scholarships.

As you know, an accounting major who wants to sit for the CPA exam must now complete a 150 hour, (i.e.-5 year) degree program. The cost of this extra year of education will ultimately impact businesses that rely on CPA’s, as well as public accounting firms. Our chapter believes that having scholarship dollars available for students may make the difference in a student’s decision to work towards the five-year accounting degree versus a four-year degree. The result will be professionals who are more qualified to deal with today’s business environment. This is great for the student and for all of us who employ and work with accountants in our businesses.

For additional information about our Educational Fund please contact our Executive Director, Ann Tague, at 903-526-1040.

Please take a moment to look over the list of sponsors who made the
2016 Golf Tournament, the largest fundraising event for scholarships in our history!!

Please show them your appreciation!
