Fund Contribution

Established in 2015, The Moynihan Scholarship Fund (MSF) honors the memory of NYSSCPA Past President David J. Moynihan (1955–2015), a staunch advocate for educational opportunities. Donations to The MSF support the student programs—the Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) and Excellence in Accounting Scholarship programs. Your voluntary donation to The MSF can be increased by crossing out the suggested amount and recalculating the “Total Due” line. The MSF is a 501(c)(3) organization.

The Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession Program is a unique learning experience that introduces promising underrepresented minority high school juniors to accounting and business careers. Held on college campuses across New York State, the COAP program provides students with a glimpse of the college experience. Through field trips to accounting firms, government agencies, and corporations, participants are exposed to the breadth and depth of a career as a CPA. Find out more about COAP here.

Excellence in Accounting Scholarship—Available to accounting majors in New York State, this program is designed to assist students who demonstrate need and scholastic achievement. This is a particularly important source of funding for students in their fifth year (when it is often difficult to obtain scholarships or financial aid). Find out more here.
