2022 DC/Tysons Community Impact Annual Report

Together. For Better.

Annual Report Summary

Together. For Better. Two of our core values in action. Connecting our community efforts and the culture that we have at the firm is one of the really important things we do in this region.


As I reflect on the last year, I’m extremely proud of our commitment to the greater Washington community. We provided robust support to local nonprofits through our time and talents as demonstrated in this annual report.

FY22 Community Impact Donations and Sponsorships


125th Anniversary Community Impact Day

We celebrated KPMG's 125th anniversary on August 2nd with a Community Impact Day, where our partners and professionals participated in volunteer activities and special events across the country. Our 90 offices throughout the U.S. identified 450 local non-profits to support the anniversary celebration.




KPMG DC/Tyson Community Impact Day

To celebrate KPMG’s 125th Anniversary, we had a firm-wide Community Impact Day. Together. For Better.


“KPMG is so big, every day I come across new people and discover new services we offer. That’s why events like the 125th CI are so special. They bring us together and create a sense of KPMG community around our common values. I really enjoyed seeing colleagues from all different lines of business meet and form connections around a cause they were passionate about.”

- Milly Onslow


“I really enjoyed volunteering for Junior Achievement of Greater Washington as part of Community Impact Day this year. Not only was the work fun and rewarding, but it was great to get out from behind my computer screen and connect with my teammates and other KPMG folks! I look forward to being a Team Captain again!”

- Adam Wise


“My favorite experience as a team captain on Community Impact day, aside from being part of the tremendous success in celebrating the firm’s legacy, was connecting with colleagues of all levels from various practices to achieve a common goal. I'm thankful to have been a part of this huge milestone and to celebrate the success of our firm while strengthening our community.”

- Sean Nguyen



Nonprofit Partnership Spotlight



At KPMG we believe that small actions can lead to huge impact. Our work with the National MS Society provides us with multiple opportunities to unite for a powerful cause so that people living with MS can live their best lives. In 2013, KPMG was inducted into National MS Society’s Circle of Distinction for raising more than $4.6 million over the last decade. In 2022, our DC/Tysons KPMG team raised over $27,000 for the MS Bike Nation’s Capital Ride.

“I believe that our partnership with KPMG is truly a collaborative authentic community alliance in which the financial support and rich engagement help to advance the mission of the National MS Society and the social impact objectives of KPMG.  The National MS Society has real champions on the KPMG team with whom we work year-round to grow and deepen our relationship year over year.”

- Chartese Barry, President, National MS Society


“Over 3 million people globally, of which 1 million are in the US, have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a disease affecting the central nervous system that results in unpredictable symptoms from numbness to paralysis.  With those facts in mind and a lifelong goal to help others achieve their best lives, I jumped at the chance to lead our KPMG DC area partnership with and be a board trustee of the MS Society.  The partnership KPMG has with the MS Society has given me, my family, colleagues, and friends an opportunity to come together at walks, bike rides, and other events to support those with MS, while building a common bond with others in the community to work together for better.”     

- Dirk Gifford, Partner, National MS Society Board of Directors

Launched last year at the 2021 KPMG Women's PGA Championship in Atlanta, the Birdies for Books program provided 13,750 books to Atlanta-area schools. During our 2022 KPMG WPGA, for every birdie made during the tournament's four rounds, KPMG donated 10 books to underserved school districts in the Washington, D.C. area, benefitting our KPMG Family for Literacy (KFFL) program. The mission of KFFL is to eradicate childhood illiteracy by putting new books and educational resources into the hands of children in need and developing the next generation of young leaders through reading. Annually we support 18 Title 1 schools and serve almost 10,000 kids in the DMV area.
