Projects we fund 

The KPMG Foundation trustees are particularly interested in funding local projects which will have national impact, for example grants which use the local level as a laboratory but where monitoring and evaluation and networks allow a national profile. In some cases, the national strategy has not been determined at the start of the project, but we help the charities draw this together through the lifecycle of the project.

Current projects we fund are:

 

Business in the Community
