We are privileged to work with some of Ireland’s most dedicated charities, helping to make a difference to those who need it most. Supporting these efforts to make a difference are some inspiring figures, from in-kind donations in 2020 of €984,554 to cash donations of over €694,000 and employee fundraising of over €151,000.
This financial support is backed up by the passion and hard work of our volunteers who last year dedicated 10,085 staff hours to our volunteer programmes.
KPMG’s firm-wide charity donations scheme supports a variety of charities and causes. Here is an insight to some of our activities and the charities that we work with.
KPMG Ireland established the Denis O’Connor Walking Festival to commemorate our late Managing Partner and raise much-needed funds for a range of good causes. ALONE was the 2020 beneficiary who received €30,000 from the fundraiser. Previous beneficiaries include the Temple Street Foundation, Hospice Foundation, Focus Ireland, Debra Ireland, Pieta House and many more.
Each year our people generously contribute thousands of shoeboxes filled with toys for Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal in support of disadvantaged children in countries all over the world.
We partner with St. Michael’s House, where our people work with those with intellectual disability. Collectively we have developed Multi-Sensory Story packs – an imaginative aid for children and their families which help the children develop their sensory development.
In response to the pandemic, 50 KPMG people volunteered with ALONE’s services.
