KPMG LLP announced today that it has launched a nationwide employee volunteer campaign, titled “Service in Remembrance,” to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11. As part of the campaign, which will take place from September 6-11, thousands of KPMG partners and employees will volunteer at more than 200 non-profits across the country.
All members of KPMG’s U.S. firm have been granted “volunteer time off” for participation in service projects, in addition to the 12 hours of volunteer time KPMG grants each person annually. KPMG’s 85 offices across the country identified more than 200 local non-profits to support for the “Service in Remembrance” initiative, and KPMG partners and employees also have the option of volunteering at the non-profit of their choice.
KPMG has given more than $1 million to help fund the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in New York and contributed to the Pentagon Memorial through grassroots fundraising efforts and firm contributions. KPMG is also a national corporate partner of the New York Says Thank You Foundation’s National 9/11 Flag Tour, a grassroots restoration and nationwide display of The National 9/11 Flag, the tattered flag rescued from Ground Zero.
