KPMG’s Family for Literacy

At KPMG LLP, we are focused on serving children at every stage of their academic career through our corporate citizenship programs. Knowing that strong reading skills are the basis for future success, and understanding that the toughest roadblock to children’s literacy in low-income communities is a lack of books, in 2008 we established KPMG’s Family for Literacy (KFFL) to combat childhood illiteracy. Managed in collaboration with First Book, an award-winning non-profit social enterprise, KFFL provides new books to children from low income families.

The success of KFFL has been achieved through harnessing the energy and enthusiasm of KPMG’s extended family including our partners, employees, spouses, family members, interns and retirees as well as professional golfers Phil Mickelson and Stacy Lewis.

Since its inception in 2008, KFFL has distributed more than 2.5 million new books to low-income children in more than 90 communities across the United States. Global expansion has begun with programs started in India, Mexico, UK and South Africa.
