Month of Service

2024 Iowa CPAs Month of Service

Unite with CPAs, accounting professionals, co-workers and accounting students for the annual Iowa CPAs Month of Service to make a positive impact in your local community this September. Since its launch in 2015, the profession-wide community service event has logged well over 10,000 volunteer hours on projects impacting over 100 organizations in Iowa. The event helps raise awareness of the CPA profession’s influence in communities across the state each September. Hopefully, this inspires younger Iowans considering a future career as a certified public accountant.

Sponsor the event

For only $500 you or your business can be a Champion level sponsor with your name or logo on the event t-shirts and other benefits. Three sponsorship levels are available. Hurry! Month of Service sponsorship submission deadline is Aug. 2.

Sign up to participate

Individuals: register here. Teams: Use the team registration form and refer to these steps for organizing a team.

Deadline for registrations for those wanting volunteer t-shirts is Aug. 9. Registration remains open through Sept. 15 without t-shirt. 

Who can participate?

ISCPA members, co-workers and student members are encouraged to participate individually or as a team. Volunteer for a community or charitable cause of your choice for a day or a few hours — any activity that benefits your community counts!

Share your projects and service!

Take pictures and videos of your volunteer projects or activities while wearing your event t-shirt and share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using hashtag #IowaCPAsVol24. Be sure to tag us! Find all of our social media links in the footer of this web page.
