KPMG has been recognized by Points of Light as one of the most community-minded companies in America for the sixth consecutive year. KPMG and its people gave over $52 million in charitable donations and logged close to 120,000 volunteer hours over the past year to accelerate positive change locally and nationally.
“Despite the challenges of the last year, our firm and our people have demonstrated a strong commitment to our communities, which has led to this honor,” said Managing Director, Community Impact Jennifer Flynn Dear. “I thank our people who continue to volunteer and give so much of themselves to improve the lives of others and thank our leaders who champion our work and our commitment.”
With support from the KPMG U.S. Foundation, Inc., KPMG donated over $2 million to COVID-19 relief efforts and provided over 800 grants to nonprofit organizations nominated by KPMG employees. Last year, KPMG Family for Literacy, a fund of the KPMG U.S. Foundation, collaborated with First Book to get nearly six million books to students in low-income school districts.
“Points of Light believes that corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical to strengthening communities,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO, Points of Light. “We thank KPMG for their investment in the communities where they live and work and look forward to supporting them in leveraging their time, talent and assets to make 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. The 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.
