FAU’s School of Accounting Receives Gift
from Goldstein Lewin & Co.
BOCA RATON, FL (July 20, 2009) – Florida Atlantic University’s School of Accounting, a department within the Barry Kaye College of Business, recently received a $5,500 gift from Goldstein Lewin & Co., certified public accountants and consultants. The gift will help support students in the School of Accounting by providing funding for scholarships and professional development.
“Our firm has grown dramatically over the past several years. Much of the staffing for this growth has come from the many FAU accounting graduates we have hired, trained and promoted over the years,” said Don Goldstein. “We feel this is a long term commitment that we must continue to fund despite the current economic conditions. In the long run, both the students and our firm will benefit from our support.”
This gift marks the company’s third annual contribution, with previous gifts of $5,000 in 2008 and 2007. Goldstein Lewin & Co. also is a regular sponsor of the School of Accounting’s annual fundraising event “Celebration.”
“The School of Accounting at FAU greatly values the support of Goldstein Lewin & Co.,” said Somnath Bhattacharya, director of the School of Accounting at FAU. “Our relationship with Goldstein Lewin & Co. exemplifies the synergies that exist between the accounting profession and the School of Accounting, and the manner in which our students gain immeasurably from the leveraging of such synergies.”
The School of Accounting has more than 1,600 students enrolled at FAU. Its mission is to provide innovative accounting programs by employing diverse faculty to teach and develop students’ technical, analytical, communication, interpersonal and lifelong learning skills. The School of Accounting Scholars Program recruits highly-qualified and motivated students for a full-time, two-year day program beginning in the senior year. Graduates of the program receive both a bachelor of business administration and a master of accounting, and complete the requirements of the Florida Board of Accountancy.
