CPA Volunteer Opportunities in Pennsylvania

PICPA Cares is a year-long collaboration of CPA volunteers and volunteer opportunities that happen across Pennsylvania. Accounting firms and PICPA members are encouraged to participate in, or host, volunteer opportunities such as Ronald McDonald House Nights, fundraisers, food pantries, and much more.

See below for a volunteer opportunity in your chapter and check out ideas on how you and your firm can get involved. If you represent a firm that has held an event or has one planned, be sure to complete the form on the left and tell us about it!

Achieve Now 
October 2018-May 2019
Achieve Now, a Philadelphia nonprofit with a mission of helping young children in the city become literate, is seeking a large Center City firm to donate a space big enough to hold 50 people for coaching lessons from October-May. The coaching sessions are for children in grades kindergarten-second, would last one hour, and take place once a week - on the same day - each week. The firm would not be obligated to staff the volunteer opportunities - the PICPA can assist with that - but firm members can participate. Please contact Jim DeLuccia if your firm can donate the space.
