Giving at a glance

“Here are some examples of how we are giving back where we live and work:

  • Dellwood Middle School: Through work shadowing days, students spent a few hours with us to find out what kinds of careers are available, received planning and preparation advice to get career ready, and enjoyed interacting with our people who are already in those careers. We also donated 50 re-conditioned laptops and oversaw and funded the installation of campus-wide WiFi.
  • Make A Difference Day: Our people got first-hand experience volunteering and a better appreciation of giving back in their community, and were encouraged to continue the relationships with the charitable and service organisations we support. In 2018, we partnered with The Bermuda National Trust and The Bermuda Zoological Society.
  • Movember: Our firm’s MoBros demonstrated their creativity and various abilities when it comes to growing facial hair, and contributed to changing the face of men’s health. The team got a little hairy for a great cause, and with the support of their MoSistas, successfully raised $7,500 for the Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre during Movember in Bermuda.
  • Relay for Life: Leading up to and in anticipation of the event, Team KPMG in Bermuda hosted a number of fundraising initiatives to quickly exceed our donation goal of $10,000. With the enthusiasm and generosity of our employees, we surpassed our fundraising goal, raising $23,971 for the Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre.
  • Toys For Tots: Employees showed their holiday spirit by organising a toy donation to fill Santa’s sleigh during the annual, island-wide Toys for Tots Campaign. Our team recognises how important it is to help others throughout the year, and especially during the time of year that signifies family, community and generosity”.
