As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities across the country and around the world, New York-based KPMG has pledged over $2 million to support a variety of nonprofit organizations in their work amid the crisis.
Through its KPMG U.S. Foundation, the firm has earmarked $1 million in charitable funds for the KPMG Disaster Relief Fund COVID-19 campaign, which will aid 501c-3 organizations across the U.S. that are focused on health, wellness and lifelong learning activities. In addition, donations totaling $400,000 will be made in the form of community impact grants to charitable nonprofit organizations actively supported by KPMG employees, and another $130,000 in grants has already been disbursed to nonprofits with which KPMG already has a relationship, including the American Heart Association, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Junior Achievement and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
“We remain deeply committed to serving and supporting our communities during this challenge our world is facing,” KPMG Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie says. “I’m also proud of our many partners and professionals across the country who are stepping up to help their local communities at this time in so many different ways.”
