Encouraging our people to contribute to the less fortunate in our community
At KPMG in Singapore, community outreach is a part of our firm’s strategy to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. We are committed to supporting our communities and view citizenship as a responsibility aligned with our core values, essential to who we are, and vital to building the public trust that is so important to our business.
Our approach to citizenship is founded on the belief that business has a distinct and vital role to play in helping to solve the world's most complex problems. Responsible business practices and our people, which are at the heart of citizenship, help build trust and contribute to the development of our communities.
Through KPMG Cares, we continue to twin philanthropy with our commitment to build resilient communities. Our focus on community investment areas can be summarised into the following areas:
Past projects under our Corporate Citizenship programme have also included:
- Introducing our Give Time programme since 2009 where KPMG employees are given up to 40 hours of paid leave per annum to drive & participate in community projects.
- Championing community efforts during Covid-19, including supporting Temasek’s Foundation #BYOBclean initiative, donating laptops to underprivileged kids to facilitate home-based learning, and organising a fundraiser to provide 300 vulnerable families with basic grocery and meals for 3 months
- Participation in RISE Mentorship Programs and CV Clinics by SG Enable in support of persons with disability
- Organising Giving Month, an annual event where we dedicate a month to giving back to the community
- Working together with 19 beneficiaries from SPD, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Federation, CPAS and Grace Orchard as part of our Inclusive Employment Training Programme to equip them with crafting skills for paid employment.

At KPMG, serving our communities is core to our purpose and role as a corporate citizen. From equipping people with disabilities (PWDs) with new skills to open new doors for them through our Inclusive Employment Initiative and Skills Training Programme, to organising our Giving Month, a month-long series of engagement activities planned by our own staff volunteers, KPMG in Singapore is committed to building resilient communities.
We are extremely humbled and honoured to be recognised for our efforts as Champions of Good, a recognised status by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s Company of Good programme. True credit goes to our staff volunteers who commit their time and skills to doing good.
At KPMG Cares, we will continue to drive the impact that KPMG in Singapore creates to new heights.
