Donor and Alumna Spotlight:  Loretta  M. Doon (M.A., '73),
LFCoB Dean's Council

Loretta Doon attended San Francisco State, graduating with a Master of Arts in Elementary Education. Although not a graduate of the Lam Family College of Business, Loretta has worked for much of her career in the accounting industry. She retired in 2019, after more than thirteen years as the CEO for the California Society of CPAs and CalCPA Education Foundation. She has served in roles with the California Teachers Association, as an auditor at Ernst & Young, and as controller at North American Reassurance Life Service Co.

Loretta has been recognized by Accounting Today as one of the most influential persons in accounting and has been named by the San Francisco Business Times as one of the most influential women in business. Loretta has served on many boards, including the Lam Family College of Business Dean’s Development Council.

Loretta is all about reaching out—to colleges and accounting students across California, to minority groups and to women. Last September, she established the Loretta Doon Scholarship Endowment in Accounting to ensure future accounting students will have the means to persist towards graduation. By providing this scholarship to deserving students, she hopes that recipients will be able to minimize their financial aid debt and avoid having to work multiple jobs to pay for college so that they can focus on their education.
