The KPMG Foundation manages the partnership's contributions and allocation of funds.

The KPMG Foundation (“the Foundation”), officially chartered as a charitable entity in February 2008, manages the partnership’s contributions and the strategic allocation of funds.

The Foundation is governed by a board, which meets regularly to review grant proposals, select grantees and manage the partnership’s contributions to strategically allocate funds in line with the firm’s four CSR pillars. The board also works with KPMG China’s 14 local CSR Committees to identify volunteer opportunities and potential community partners. This structured giving platform complements our firm’s CSR goals, and helps ensure that all our programmes are needs-driven, scalable and sustainable in the long term.

The Foundation’s objective is to support the underprivileged and disadvantaged youth in Hong Kong and China through projects focusing on education and empowerment. It also focuses on promoting community participation in the protection of the environment in Hong Kong and China. In addition, the Foundation is the gatekeeper for managing the partnership’s contribution. Therefore, a set of guiding principles was set to assist the Foundation board in making grants to support certain programmes or initiatives.

The KPMG Foundation takes into account the following factors when supporting a project:

  • The projects are aligned with our CSR focus.
  • They are in places where KPMG has a presence, and offer scope for staff involvement. 
  • The programmes can draw upon KPMG’s professional expertise.
  • The projects are innovative, with a community, participatory approach to help underprivileged groups help themselves.
  • They can produce measurable results and have the potential to become sustainable.
  • The projects are specific, rather than applications for general funds
  • They are legally registered non-profit or charitable organisations providing services in Hong Kong and/or the mainland that work in partnership with the government, and/or other philanthropic, private sector and not-for-profit partners.
