Mark Smith Energizes the COCPA Educational Foundation's Campaign through the 2014 Colorado Gives Day

April 8, 2014

The Educational Foundation of the Colorado Society of CPAs offers scholarships exclusively for accounting students around the state.  In 2014, after a concentrated effort to promote the availability of these scholarships, the Foundation did not have the funds for nearly half of the highly qualified applicants.  Therefore, they made a concentrated effort to raise more scholarship dollars in connection with Colorado Gives Day, a day developed to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.

As told in the January/February edition of the COCPA News Account magazine, "The first step was to seek a donor willing to energize the campaign with a matching grant.  Longtime supporter and Foundation Past President Mark J. Smith, CPA, Greenwood Village, came forward..."  Combining Mark's matching grant from the Mark J. Smith Family Foundation, Mark's challenge to other donors, and the generous donors on Colorado Gives Day after a fierce marketing campaign, the Foundation was able to raise nearly half of its annual donations in a single day.

Mark is grateful to all 109 donors that allowed over 15 qualified applicants receive scholarships.
