Hear from those who have been involved with and grown through donations to the MACPA Foundation.


Support from the MACPA organization has been one of the most influential factors in my aspiring CPA journey, especially to meet Maryland’s CPA exam education requirements and invest in CPA study materials. The MACPA scholarship and other programs such as the Student Leadership Academy contributed in the success to further achieve elements of my bigger goal. My goal is to advance my financial skills and capabilities in order to help leaders and their communities manage financial resources and build financial well-being.

I believe the best potential is unleashed after the transition from surviving to thriving. Once people have the ability to manifest their dreams into reality, positive contributions can be prevalent; because creativity and diversity in thought, character, and skill is our power."
