2022 Impact Challenge

Which college will win bragging rights by accumulating the most points?

To encourage some light-hearted competition, we are once again calling on donors to name their college of choice for foundation contributions from now through Dec. 15. One school will be crowned this year’s challenge champion. Support the Iowa CPA Education Foundation and show some school spirit with our 2022 Impact Challenge.

How it works

  1. For every $10 you donate to the Foundation, the school of your choice is awarded one impact point. Example: $50 donation = 5 impact points for your chosen college.
  2. You must enter a school's name in the comment box with your contribution on the web form found at Without this step, your college will not earn points.
  3. The college with the most impact points on Dec. 15 wins the 2022 challenge.
  4. ISCPA CEO Dawn Latham will sport the winning school's colors for a photo (she’s known to be a die-hard UNI fan).

Donor Levels

Individuals and companies will be recognized for contributions to the foundation. See our donor recognition opportunities.
