How We Make a Difference

We believe CPAs are invaluable, and anyone who wants to enter the profession should be able to do so – regardless of socioeconomic background. Everything we do is in pursuit of a stronger, more diverse CPA profession.

Provide Training for Young Talent and Educators

Through programs like Student Leadership Academy and the MACPA Champion Program, we give accounting students and young professionals valuable leadership skills training and experience. Our work also supports educators who are teaching the next generation of CPAs in colleges and universities across the state.

Grant Scholarships to Accounting Students

Our scholarship program gives financial assistance to accounting students at Maryland colleges and universities. Each year, we invest thousands of dollars in aid so that promising students can achieve their educational goals.

Advance Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

A diverse profession is a strong profession. The MACPA Foundation supports events like the Women to Watch Awards, Women’s Conference, and other programs that celebrate and enhance diversity within the CPA profession. LEARN MORE

Meet Our Board

Samantha Bowling, CPA, CGMA
Owner, Garbelman Winslow CPAs

Having an impact on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity has been at my core since I started in this profession. I believe that if you can positively impact one person’s journey then you can also impact those closely around them. Imagine what would happen if you could impact an entire profession? My guess is that we could change the world. The core of change is education, knowledge and persistence. These initiatives only remain viable if there are people or organizations that care and support them. It is not every day that you find an organization that not only supports your vision but supports human equality and kindness. I am honored to be included in a board that will directly impact the lives of young people and all people who need a little support on their journey. I am excited for what I will learn and how I will personally grow from this experience. I am ready to change the world with The MACPA Foundation!

Susan Chutka, CPA
Partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP

I am very excited to be a part of The MACPA Foundation. I understand the importance of a diverse workforce, equitable opportunities, and inclusive culture. This requires organizational commitment and inclusive leadership at the individual level. I am passionate about developing and mentoring the next generation of talent to help increase the pipeline of diverse talent and build future CPAs through The MACPA Foundation.

Jessica E. McClain, CPA, CISA, PMP, CGFM
Controller, Brand USA

I am passionate about the work I do for The MACPA Foundation as it allows me to give back to the State and profession that I love. To serve the mission of the Foundation to have a stronger and more diverse CPA profession is an exciting endeavor. As a champion of the profession’s efforts, I want my Board service to have a lasting impact.

Anoop Mehta, CPA, CGMA
President, SSAI, Inc.

As the son of a schoolteacher, I have seen the value and importance of quality education from a young age. Education is a great human equalizer and equal access to knowledge is perhaps the best way to address many societal challenges. I am looking forward to helping the next generation enter our profession through my new role with The MACPA Foundation.
