AICPA Benevolent Fund & Disaster Recovery Resources

March 3, 2021

With winter nearly behind us in many parts of the country, we’re sharing a reminder of the AICPA Benevolent Fund and disaster recovery resources, especially to those dealing with the extreme winter weather systems seen in southern states.

AICPA Benevolent Fund

The AICPA Benevolent Fund was created to support AICPA members with short-term personal financial needs. For example, the Fund can potentially help individuals who are experiencing temporary loss of income, increases in cost of living, insurance deductibles, and replacement costs associated with natural disasters. The Fund focuses its assistance on individual members (rather than businesses) and we hope you’ll help spread the word to affected CPAs. 

Kati McDaniels and Melissa Parker are the administrators of the Fund. Please visit the AICPA Benevolent Fund website to download an application for assistance, or reach out to Kati or Melissa with questions at

AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide

The AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide is a great resource before a weather situation hits. This comprehensive guide, created in partnership with the American Red Cross, is an easy-to-read tool for members and the public, with several good checklists to follow, both before and after an unfortunate event.
