On July 2, the Philadelphia Inquirer ran an op-ed by Jerry Maginnis, PICPA’s newly elected president, describing the contributions CPAs make to society. This story struck a chord with many nonprofits in the area who reached out to the PICPA to identify volunteer CPAs to help their cause. The following organizations are looking for a volunteer:

  • Chestnut Hill Historical Society
  • Coatesville National Army Guardsman
  • McNamee Scholars Program
  • Philadelphia Corporation for the Aging
  • YWCA Bucks County
View full details about the opportunities.
