Business in the Community Ireland

KPMG was one of 56 Irish companies who created almost 7000 community partnerships and donated over €32 million in cash donations, in-kind donations and employee fundraising to local charities and community groups in 2016.

This information is captured by Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI), on the online interactive Business Impact Map which gives a county-by-county breakdown of how companies and their employees supported their local community groups and charities during 2016.

Statistics for KPMG show that over €276,223 was given in cash donations; €868,871 was contributed through in-kind donations and €102,036 was raised through employee fundraising. Employees also volunteered 10,400 hours to local groups and projects during the year.

Making a Difference

Making a Difference - Corporate Citizenship at KPMG highlights KPMG's award-winning skills based endeavours in Corporate Citizenship over the previous eighteen months and brings together, in a collection of short stories, the wide range of communities and charities which have benefitted from the extra-curricular and voluntary efforts of KPMG's people.

Shaun Murphy, Managing Partner at KPMG in Ireland says: "Our commitment to corporate citizenship is a great example of our higher purpose in action - we inspire confidence and empower change in communities in Ireland and overseas. We have an award winning corporate citizenship programme that has received widespread recognition, most recently acknowledged with the Outstanding Achievement in Corporate Social Responsibility Award 2017 at the Chambers Ireland CSR Awards”

Karina Howley, Head of Corporate Citizenship at KPMG added: “Good corporate citizenship is at the heart of all great organisations and we’re privileged to work with some of Ireland’s most dedicated charities and voluntary bodies, helping make a difference to those who need it most.”

2016 Docklands Business Awards

KPMG was awarded the Responsible Business Award at the Docklands Business Awards 2016 in recognition of its work with the North Wall Community Training Centre (NWCTC). The 'Get Cents' financial literacy programme, developed by KPMG volunteers in conjunction with NWCTC, provides people from disadvantaged backgrounds with the skills and information required to manage their personal finances and live independent lives.
