Involve, KPMG's national corporate citizenship program, provides resources and support that empower and enable partners and employees to demonstrate the firm's core value of giving back to the community. By serving our communities, we create sustainable value for the organizations served, help maximize employee engagement, and leverage our talents through skills-based volunteering. Although national in scope, Involve is managed at the local-office level by our employees and partners.
Volunteer Time Release (VTR)
In an effort to compliment your dedication and sustain our value, "we are committed to our communities" KPMG launched the Volunteer Time Release (VTR) program, which enables eligible employees to volunteer at least one hour per monthup to a maximum of 12 hours per fiscal yearduring KPMG's normal business hours. The VTR program is in addition to and not in lieu of KPMG's other programs supporting community involvement and volunteerism that are offered through Involve and other local initiatives, some of which may take place on the weekend or after business hours. Company paid volunteer time is becoming a more standard practice with companies that are considered Best Places to Work, strong corporate citizens and employers of choice. KPMG was thrilled to be the first among the Big Four to offer a national volunteer time release program.
In FY12, partner and employees volunteered more than 105,000 hours of timenearly 35,000 hours were through paid Volunteer Time Release and an additional 70,000 hours were donated through other volunteerism, community, and fundraising events.
KPMG Disaster Relief Fund
The KPMG Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) was created in 1992 to enable KPMG's partners and employees to channel donations to help employees who suffered loss during Hurricane Andrew. It has since expanded its mission twice, first following the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, and again in 2004 following the tsunami that devastated the Far East. Through the generous contributions of the partners and employees of KPMG LLP and the member firms of KPMG International, the DRF has raised and distributed more than $4.8 million to help those in need.
The KPMG Foundation was established to further the firm's commitment to excellence in business, academic distinction, and diversity. This includes multifaceted involvement with the academic community, such as The PhD Projectsm and our Matching Gift Program, as well as national philanthropic efforts.Read through the 2012 KPMG Foundation Annual Report
