Our Sponsors

The ADS Program is funded by several of the largest accounting firms and state CPA societies. The program is administered by the AICPA Foundation, a 50l(c) (3) nonprofit entity. The leaders of the largest firms spearheaded the creation of the program and other major firms have joined in funding the program, with all fundraising coordinated through the AICPA Foundation.

The program sponsors are committed to helping address the shortage of accounting faculty by providing funding for the ADS Program and by encouraging members of their organizations to consider becoming accounting faculty members. They are the catalysts to positive change. Below is a list of the funding entities, to date, for the ADS Program.
