Community Impact

Acting with purpose, urgency, and stewardship to impact our communities for better.

Our community engagement efforts

We match community engagement efforts with both business interests and our people's passions to drive societal progress. We recognize our connections to the places where we live and work and the importance of improving opportunities within historically marginalized communities. 

The past two years have placed a spotlight on the importance of equity and access across society, and as a firm, we direct our community investments to address these systemic challenges.

Community investment and impact

Community Impact Day

KPMG partners and professionals volunteered nearly 82,000 hours of service in 2021.

To expand the reach of these efforts and leverage the full force of our firm, all our people will be encouraged to serve our communities on August 2, 2022, the 125th anniversary of KPMG U.S.

On Community Impact Day, KPMG will invest thousands of hours and an expected $1.25 million into the markets where we operate. This is part of our ongoing commitment to returning our community engagement activity to pre-pandemic levels.

Empowering the workforce of tomorrow

Access to education and an early embodiment of lifelong learning are crucial to promoting equity and providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop the business leaders and engaged citizens of tomorrow. 

To help our young people rebound from the challenges presented by the pandemic and beyond, we, alongside KPMG International, are committed to doing our part to help economically empower 10 million disadvantaged young people globally by 2030. A few examples in action: 

  • KFFL Summer HEAT Program
    This past summer our people answered the call to support our communities by providing students with books and learning materials as well as resources to promote exercise and healthy eating. Watch firsthand some of the impacts of the program.
  • Virtual field trips
    Recognizing how disruptive the pandemic has been on learning, and that students have missed out on many traditional in-person experiences, we created a series of award-winning, virtual field trips with recognizable leaders across sports, entertainment, and business. Our official guide for these field trips is KPMG Learning Ambassador and Olympic gold medalist, Laurie Hernandez.
