KPMG LLP has been recognized as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the U.S. by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more, and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program including investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.
“Giving back is part of our DNA and core to our culture at KPMG – not only through the work we do to deliver solutions for clients, but in our mission to use our skills, time and treasures to make a tangible difference in society,” said Rob Arning, Head of Citizenship at KPMG LLP. “Our citizenship mission is to develop next-generation leaders through lifelong learning, so we focus on empowerment through education, from pre-K to college and all the way to the C-suite.”
The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and other resources to improve the communities in which they do business.
“The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment of community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO, Points of Light. “Points of Light believes that people drive change in addressing society’s growing and most profound challenges. The business community plays an important role in creating and delivering innovative solutions that drive social good in the communities where they live and work.”
