Corporate Citizenship 

 
With more than 22,000 people in more than 90 locations across the United States, KPMG has important relationships with—and a profound impact on—the communities in which we live and work. We believe Corporate Citizenship enables us to sustain our communities by creating shared value.

 

Our corporate citizenship initiatives comprise volunteerism, philanthropy, corporate giving through the KPMG Foundation, and strategic relationships with non-profits. While they cover a broad range of issues, our main focus is youth and education and sustaining our communities through workforce readiness.

 

We view this as a long-term strategic investment that addresses an essential societal need, and fills the talent pipeline with leaders who will be uniquely prepared to embrace the challenges of a global marketplace.

  • KPMG’s Family for Literacy

    KPMG's Family for Literacy was established in 2007 to support and expand upon our philanthropic focus on youth and education. Since then, KPMG’s partners, employees, interns, alumni, and their families have distributed more than 2 million new books to low-income children in nearly 90 communities across the United States.

  • Junior Achievement

    As part of KPMG's and the KPMG Foundation's ongoing commitment to workforce readiness, and through funding from the Foundation, KPMG expanded its affiliation with Junior Achievement USA® (JA) to include the redevelopment of JA Finance Park®. This program provides middle school students with a four-week personal finance curriculum that's delivered by their teacher. Following the classroom work, the students travel to a JA Finance Park location — in some cases virtually — where their new money-management skills are put to the test with the assistance of their teachers and KPMG volunteers.

  • National Academy Foundation

    Through funding from the KPMG Foundation, KPMG has teamed with the National Academy Foundation (NAF) to strengthen high-school accounting education at its Academies of Finance (AOF) nationwide. This relationship provides us with a unique opportunity to reach high-school students who have an interest in finance, and engage our employees and partners in activities that include teaching and mentoring them.

  • Community Involvement

    KPMG's people across the U.S. volunteer for and manage community involvement programs that give life to our core value—We are committed to our communities—and reflect the personal and charitable interests of partners and employees in their local communities. KPMG is proud to have been the first in our profession to offer a national volunteer time release program, and that our partners and employees give hundreds of hours of their own time to help enhance the lives of others.

  • National Non-Profit Affiliations

    KPMG is proud of our long-standing alliances with national non-profit organizations that include the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Red Cross, Junior Achievement, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. These relationships are based on our employees’ level of volunteerism and involvement, the opportunities they offer for skills-based volunteerism, and their mission and results.

  • Disaster Relief Fund

    The KPMG Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) was created in 1992 to enable KPMG’s partners and employees to channel donations to help employees who suffered loss during Hurricane Andrew. It has since expanded its mission twice, first following the September 11, 2011, terrorist attacks, and again in 2004 following the tsunami that devastated the Far East. Through the generous contributions of the partners and employees of KPMG LLP and the member firms of KPMG International, the DRF has raised and distributed more than $4.8 million to help those in need.

  • KPMG Foundation

    The KPMG Foundation was established to further the firm's commitment to excellence in business, academic distinction, and diversity. This includes multifaceted involvement with the academic community, such as The PhD Project℠ and KPMG’s Matching Gift Program, as well as national philanthropic efforts.
