KPMG has been selected by Points of Light as a Civic 50 honoree for the seventh consecutive year. Despite the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, the firm and its people gave over $47 million in charitable donations and logged close to 82,000 hours of service in FY21.
“Now more than ever, we remain steadfast in our commitment to support our communities. The inspiring and impactful work of our people, and our commitment to drive societal progress, positioned the firm for this great honor,” said Managing Director, KPMG Community Impact Jennifer Flynn Dear. “We are excited to bring the full power of the firm to serve our communities on August 2 in celebration of the 125th anniversary of KPMG.” On Community Impact Day, KPMG will invest thousands of hours and $1.25 million into the markets where it operates.
“Corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical for strengthening communities,” said Natalye Paquin, president & CEO of Points of Light. “Our most recent global research shows 86 percent of people say they expect companies to take action on a social issue. Companies like KPMG are leading the way and setting an example of how you can leverage your employee talent, business models and assets to create deep impact that drives transformational change.”
The Civic 50 provides a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills, and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs – investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
