KPMG’s Family for Literacy

Bringing New Books and the Joy of Reading to Children in Need

John Veihmeyer helps a child fill out a bookplate at an event in Montreal.

KPMG's Family for Literacy and First Book together provide hundreds of thousands of new books each year to children in need in KPMG communities and nationwide. The alignment of KPMG's commitment and resources with First Book’s national reach and local impact has garnered widespread acclaim and raised funds and awareness for the cause of literacy. KPMG's Family for Literacy has made it possible for local schools and programs to obtain new books for the children they serve. To date, the generous people of KPMG, along with their families and friends, have contributed nearly 30,000 hours in volunteer support to First Book and our network of Recipient Groups.

Every $10.00 you give provides four new books for a child in need.
Your tax-deductible online contributions make it possible for local First Book Recipient Groups to obtain books through the First Book Marketplace. This award-winning online bookstore offers new children’s books at deeply discounted prices only to programs and schools serving children in low-income communities.

“To those of us who are lucky, we can remember our parents reading to us, or if we are blessed to be a parent, one of our favorite memories is reading to our children. This program touches that wonderful, powerful gift, the gift of literature that unfortunately for many needy children remains a critical void.”
