At KPMG New Zealand, we are working together to inspire confidence and empower change that has a positive and lasting impact on our communities. Fuelling the prosperity of New Zealand – improving the health, wealth and wellbeing for all New Zealanders – is a common purpose that is fundamental to who we are and what we stand for as an organisation.
A commitment to our communities is at the heart of KPMG’s values and culture, and central to our purpose. We believe that by being focused and prioritising our effort, we can collectively achieve more.
Many of our people dedicate their time, skills and passion to making a meaningful difference in the communities we work and live in. Our people give back to our community in many different ways – providing professional work on a pro bono basis, volunteering, and working alongside partner schools and community organisations.
We are also proud to announce the establishment of a KPMG Tauranga corporate fund with the Acorn Foundation. The partnership has provided the initial ‘seed capital’ for the fund, which will be added to on an annual basis and we have invited our team to join us through workplace giving, where staff can nominate an amount to contribute each month, and the tax rebate is applied from their payroll so staff don’t need to keep receipts or apply for tax refunds each year. Donations will be matched by KPMG up to an agreed level. A Giving Committee will be established to work together with Acorn to choose recipients of the KPMG distributions. We are hoping that our team take up this opportunity and create real momentum to give back, amongst our team and other businesses.
Fuelling prosperity together. Working together. Stronger together.
