KPMG in East Africa has a comprehensive CSI policy that serves as a guiding tool for Social Responsibility themes to support which complement our brand:
- Duration of the projects to be supported i.e. long term (adopt-a-project) or short term (corporate philanthropy).
- Nature of our contribution e.g. staff time, pro bono professional services, cash or in-kind support etc.
- Scope of our support (firm-wide local or firm-wide regional).
- Reward system for CSI champions (those who give a significant percentage of their time to CSI).
We currently support the following initiatives and projects:
- Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE): Robert Onyango, Senior Manager, sits on the advisory board of SIFE Kenya while every year KPMG provides judges to review various SIFE projects. We give cash donations every year towards tickets for the winning campus to International competitions.
