December 2020 is your opportunity to support the TXCPA Month of Service. You may participate through charitable donations, virtual volunteer events, or in-person activities to make a difference through service in your community.
The original 2015 CPA Day of Service has expanded to a full month each year to offer more flexibility to members. In 2020 the recommended focus is on financial literacy education and service, which is a year-round need for people of all ages.
Below are just a few local 501c3 foundations that offer financial literacy programs as part of their services.
