AICPA Benevolent Fund
The AICPA Benevolent Fund was created to support AICPA members with short-term personal financial needs. For example, the Fund can potentially help individuals who are experiencing temporary loss of income, increases in cost of living, insurance deductibles, and replacement costs associated with natural disasters. The Fund focuses its assistance on individual members (rather than businesses) and we hope you’ll help spread the word to affected CPAs.
Kati McDaniels and Melissa Parker are the administrators of the Fund. Please visit the AICPA Benevolent Fund to download an application for assistance, or reach out to Kati or Melissa with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide
The AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide is a great resource to have before a weather situation hits. This comprehensive guide, created in partnership with the American Red Cross, is an easy-to-read tool with several good checklists to follow, both before and after an unfortunate event.
Please let me know if you have questions or need more information, and let’s each remember to pack our own “disasters supply kit” (see page 7), too!
