This week, during a literacy event in Houston, KFFL donated its four millionth book! The book went to a local student whose family lost her home and pets to Hurricane Harvey last year.
KPMG's Family for Literacy (KFFL) program provides children from low-income families with new books — and in many cases, their very first book. In collaboration with First Book, an award winning nonprofit social enterprise, 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 our 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.
