Belgium

Community 

We encourage our people to use their expertise, skills and time to respond effectively to the needs of our local communities. KPMG is committed to its communities and this goes to the heart of our values. We work in partnership with non-profit organizations to create shared value and to help communities grow and prosper.

Make a Difference Day

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program and continual campaign to cooperate with the local organizations, the KPMG network in Belgium sponsors an annual Make a Difference day (MADD), which encourages KPMG employees to take part in a half-day, hands-on volunteering project to benefit the less privileged in our local communities.

 

KPMG Madd 

 

Each year, a wide range of volunteer projects throughout Belgium, are selected in which all KPMG employees are welcome to participate. Projects included environmental, painting, decorating and social support activities.

Big collection drive

 Big collection drive

 

Nobody is more excited by the annual visit of Saint Nicholas and Santa Claus than children. Unfortunately, there are still too many children living below the poverty level who won’t know the thrill of receiving a nice gift. To bring a bit of joy to a good number of less fortunate children, the KPMG network in Belgium organized a big internal collection of children’s toys and books.

 

The collected toys and books were given to the Voedselbank Brussel-Brabant vzw/Banque Alimentaire Bruxelles-Brabant asbl who were very pleased with our contribution and thanked us for our generosity.

 Corporate Runs

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program, we support our employees in participating in one or several of the following runs:

 

  • Antwerp 10 miles and Marathon
  • Zatopek Urban Tour Charleroi and Liège
  • Dwars door Brugge
  • 20km through Brussels
  • Jogging-Marche “Entreprises/Université” de Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park
  • Les 10km de Liège
  • Dwars door Hasselt

 

In addition, we choose a good cause for which participants can collect monetary donations from individual sponsors in support of the selected charity. In 2012 we ran for Chain of Hope Belgium, in 2013 we ran for Kom op tegen Kanker and in 2014 we supported the worthy cause Pirlewiet vzw.

 

Pirlewiet organizes holidays for underprivileged children, teenagers, adults and families who must deal with health problems and poor living conditions. Next year will be no different, as the cause we choose will once again reflect our commitment to giving back to the community in which we operate.
