Making a difference
The ICAS Foundation helps make a difference to academically talented young people from disadvantaged communities by helping them take their first steps into a professional career in accountancy, finance or management. This is achieved through financial support, a mentoring scheme and internships that add important skills and experiences required upon graduation.
The ICAS Foundation is funded through donations from CAs who are members of ICAS, which is a professional body for over 19,000 world class business men and women who work in the UK and in more than 100 countries around the world. Members of ICAS have all achieved the internationally recognised and respected CA qualification (Chartered Accountant). Almost two thirds the working membership work in business, many leading some of the UK’s and the world’s great companies. The others work in accountancy practices ranging from the Big Four in the City to the small practitioner.
