KPMG's values form the basis for each member firm’s commitment to strive towards helping the communities around us. Within this framework, KPMG in Greece demonstrates this commitment by carrying out Pro-Bono work for several organizations, and charitable activities in the community.

Apart from several recurring, established such activities, KPMG in Greece also displays its commitment to communities in need, during times of extreme hardship, such as following environmental disasters. 

Perama Project

One of the main, recurrent charitable activities that KPMG in Greece carries out is the "Perama Project" – an initiative that began in 2005. Since then, KPMG in Greece has been providing over 120 impoverished families in the Perama area of Athens with basic necessities on a regular basis during each year. These basic necessities mainly include long-life foodstuffs such as potatoes, canned goods, cooking oil, sugar, beans, lentils, pasta and tomato puree, but can also include basic-hygiene products such as shampoo, soap and other. 

 

ELEPAP - Rehabilitation for the disabled

KPMG in Greece actively supports ELEPAP in a number of ways. 

A senior member of our Firm is a member of ELEPAP’s BoD, thus being in the position to offer insight and help when the occasion calls for. Moreover, we support ELEPAP with the strong force of all our employees in a number of ways and occasions. 

ELEPAP, just like any other non for profit organization needs people’s contribution to help it stay alive and continue its work. For this to happen the organization needs to raise awareness for the work it is carrying out.

As a Firm we organize a number of annual business conferences attracting professionals from all sectors and industries of the market. 

During these events we provide space for an information stall, so that the organization’s representatives can inform delegates of their work and we play ELEPAPs’ fundraising-video at each event, coupled with a short introduction by us, thus providing a line of communication to much wanted wider professional audience 

More importantly, the ELEPAP logo is included in all our events’ promotional material, serving as a constant reminder of our connection to the organization and of our support.
