What is the MSCPA Day of Service?

The Day of Service encourages MSCPA members to get involved in their community through volunteerism projects. If you don't have a specific organization in mind, this year we have partnered with Cradles to Crayons - a nonprofit organization that hosts special industry days to bring together colleagues from similar industries to help serve children across the Commonwealth. They will be holding a "CPA Industry Day" for our members to volunteer at the organization on Friday, June 15, 2018. Members volunteer during "shifts" between 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and/or 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Volunteers are limited to about 120 people for the morning shift and 240 for the afternoon shift. To learn more about the partnership, check out this flyer.

How Does The MSCPA Day of Service Work?

Volunteers must follow these steps to participate:

  1. Select a cause — Choose an organization to work with.
  2. Contact your charity — Contact your chosen organization immediately to find out what opportunities are available on the selected date (some charities have limited space and opportunities available).
  3. Sign up by Friday, June 8 — After you have chosen and contacted an organization, fill out this online form to officially sign up for the CPA Day of Service.
  4. Participate on Friday, June 15 — Show your pride and the generosity of the CPA profession by serving your community!
  5. Follow-up — After your Day of Service is complete, send pictures and feedback of your event to hnaranjo@mscpaonline.org. They will be posted on our website and used in media outreach to show what a difference Massachusetts CPAs made.
