Each spring since 2007, Whitworth accounting students have prepared local residents' income tax returns at United Way and various AARP sites. The students provide this free service through the IRS's Voluntary Income Tax Assistance initiative.
- Annual participating Whitworth students: 12-16
- People served: the elderly, military personnel, immigrants and low-income residents
- Tax returns prepared: 5,000+
- Hours of service: 500+
Our students come away from the experience inspired to use their technical skills to support others in their community. They often participate in VITA multiple times because it feels great to do good.
You do a great deal of good, too. With your support, the students who participate in VITA can attend Whitworth and become equipped to meet others' needs.
Thank you for making a difference for our students and for the community members they will continue to serve once classes resume on campus. What a day of celebration that will be!
