The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is the world’s largest member body for accountants.  With more than 400,000 members in 145 countries, the AICPA has a 127 year history of advancing programs to promote the public interest.  

360 Degrees of Financial Literacy is the national volunteer effort of CPAs to help  all Americans understand their personal finances through every stage in life.  It is designed to improve the financial capability of Americans.  In conjunction with the efforts of the independent state CPA societies, the program combines grassroots financial literacy efforts with free resources for the public and tools for CPAs to educate Americans of all ages on financial topics.
