KPMG Will Donate $50,000 to Increasing Youth Literacy
October 20, 2012
KPMG has announced that it will be donating $50,000 to improving literacy for disadvantaged children. KPMG made the announcement in honor of professional golfer Phil Mickelson in honor of a shot he made during halftime intermission during a Monday night football game this week.
Mickelson is proud that the initiative has been announced in his name. He is helping KPMG with its Blue for Books campaign, which aims to help children from low-income families have easier access to books.
Mickelson launched the campaign with KPMG in March. He firmly believes in its mission and expects it will make a large difference in reducing illiteracy throughout the United States.
KPMG said that the $50,000 it is donating will be used to purchase more than 20,000 books for underprivileged children throughout the country. The money will be donated to First Book, a nonprofit organization committed to helping bring books to children in need.
First Book typically works with publishers and helps them forge connections with local organizations that can distribute books to children. They have a solid track record for bringing books to underprivileged children, but have proudly accepted KPMG’s new donation. Kyle Zimmer, CEO of First Book, said the donation will make a big difference for many children throughout the country.
