Concern has a valued relationship with KPMG. Over the past number of years, KMPG has generously helped to transform the lives of the world’s poorest people and supported our operations in Ireland.

Corporate funding for disaster relief

KPMG has 1,207,050 staff in 155 countries and over the past few years, these employees have raised over €16 million for disaster relief. Thanks to our corporate partnership, Concern has been eligible to apply for the disaster relief funds raised by KPMG. These funds have greatly supported our emergency and humanitarian work.

Supporting women in Haiti

KPMG has also supported a Concern programme for women in Haiti called “Pathway to a Better Life”. The programme offered women in remote, rural areas the opportunity to earn money in their own community. With funding from KPMG, we provided practical training in specific business skills as well as marketing and general business skills. We also provided advice on managing household budgets, how to save and how to take control of personal finances.

Far reaching partnership

As part of KPMG’s relationship with Concern, the company has provided pro-bono audit services. Over the past couple of years, they have sent staff members on secondment to work in our overseas offices, carrying out specific auditing tasks. They have also encouraged staff to organise fundraising events to support our work.
