"Since 1897, our firm and our people have taken great pride in serving our clients, communities and the capital markets with excellence," said Paul Knopp, Chair and CEO, KPMG LLP. "We look forward to celebrating our 125th anniversary and beyond by continuing to invest in and positively impact our communities across the country where our people live and work."
In honor of the 125th anniversary, the firm and the KPMG U.S. Foundation will invest $125 million over the next five years in programs helping underrepresented groups confront systemic barriers to opportunities in education, health care and economic opportunity, while working together with these groups to help create stronger, more resilient communities.
