KPMG U.S. Foundation announces Voices for Equity Program award recipients

One of the many ways KPMG U.S. supports its people is through its seven employee-led Business Resource Groups (BRGs). These are firmwide multigenerational associations that provide professionals with resources, a safe space to learn and grow, and the opportunity to give back to local communities in a meaningful way. 

As part of the firm’s commitment to advancing equity, the KPMG U.S. Foundation recently launched the Voices for Equity Program, unlocking the power of over 17,000 BRG members through community giving. Through this program, each BRG will provide funding to organizations whose mission and work resonates with the interests of KPMG professionals.

Earlier this year, all seven BRGs had the opportunity to nominate nonprofit organizations whose mission elevates the priorities of their group. Members from every BRG then voted on their top three nominated organizations; each BRG selected one to receive a $25,000 grant.

This year, the following organizations received awards:

As outlined in the firm’s Accelerate 2025 initiative, KPMG U.S. is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. The Voices for Equity Program is one example of how the firm is striving to make a meaningful difference in local communities through the KPMG U.S. Foundation.
