Pennsylvania CPA Foundation

Memorial & Tribute Gifts

Pennsylvania CPA Foundation memorial and tribute gifts are powerful ways to celebrate someone’s life or honor someone special – and help move our mission forward.

Whether your gift is made in remembrance of someone special or to celebrate a significant milestone of a colleague or mentor (retirement, for example), these gifts hold a lasting significance for the donor and the honoree or his or her family.
