KPMG’s Family for Literacy

KPMG’s Citizenship efforts are centered on lifelong learning, which is essential to unlocking the potential in people, building economies, and above all, improving lives. Literacy is at the foundation of lifelong learning, and access to books is necessary to build strong reading skills.

KPMG’s Family for Literacy (KFFL) is the firm’s flagship Citizenship program with a mission to eradicate childhood illiteracy by putting new books into the hands of children in need and developing the next generation of young leaders through reading. This unique program is particularly effective because it harnesses the energy and enthusiasm of KPMG’s extended family not only partners and employees, but also spouses, children, interns, retirees, alumni and professional golfers and KPMG Brand Ambassadors Phil Mickelson, Stacy Lewis, Mariah Stackhouse and Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez.

Since its inception in 2008, KFFL has distributed over 4 million new books to low-income children in 100+ communities across the United States. KFFL translates across borders having spread through KPMG’s global network to India, Mexico, South Africa, Zambia, the U.K., Kenya, Canada and China.
