In collaboration with First Book, the KPMG’s Family for Literacy (KFFL) program provides children from low-income families with new books — and in many cases, their very first book. We’ve reached far and wide to help eradicate childhood illiteracy. The success of KFFL has been achieved by harnessing the energy and enthusiasm of KPMG’s extended family including partners, employees, spouses, family members, interns and retirees, as well as professional golfers and KPMG brand ambassadors Phil Mickelson, Stacy Lewis and Mariah Stackhouse. Since its inception in 2008, KFFL has provided more than 4 million new books to children in need in more than 100 communities across the United States.
“I’ve seen the way First Book’s models deliver powerful results to support its important mission of elevating educational opportunities for children in need. This is a nonprofit social enterprise that is perfectly positioned to take the power of its proven efforts to scale.
As a business leader and having worked closely with First Book to create KPMG’s Family for Literacy program, I have witnessed the difference these resources can make in the lives of children and I support bringing the power of this model to every family in need.”
