Commitment to our communities is at the heart of KPMG’s values and culture. We actively encourage and support our staff to give something back to charities throughout the country. Our financial donations and our people's time, knowledge and experience are making a real difference to a diverse number of non-profit organisations and charities.
We believe that by being focused we can collectively achieve more, so nationally KPMG’s CSR objectives are to support underprivileged and disadvantaged youth in New Zealand through projects focusing on education and leadership. We believe this educational focus area is critically aligned to Fuelling New Zealand’s prosperity.
We also think our people should have the ability to choose to work with organisations they feel most passionately about, so have a range of locally supported organisations with many different focusses.
With over 500 not for profit clients, community leadership roles and connections, KPMG made a $1.7m investment in our New Zealand communities in 2013 – including probono professional services, donations and volunteering hours.
KPMG NZ people are encouraged to volunteer in the community through Our Communities, a structured volunteering programme.
