Welcome to Our Not-for-Profit Seminar Series in Calgary 

As part of our ongoing commitment to the not-for-profit sector, KPMG has partnered with the United Way of Calgary and Area to provide a series of seminars specifically designed to address the operational and accounting issues currently confronting charitable organizations.

Entering into the fourth season of the Series, KPMG in Calgary is looking forward to hosting another successful year of educational seminars. Some of the past and future Seminar Series topics include: accounting, financial reporting, governance, cash flow forecasting, budgeting and taxation. KPMG provides these seminars to the local community at no cost. The Not-for-Profit KPMG / United Way seminar series initiative further provides a forum for the not-for-profit sector to network with one another.
