KPMG Education Trust Fund
The KPMG Education Trust Fund (“the Trust”) was established as part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to champion lifelong learning and empower education for B40 and young talents nationwide. The Trust annually commits RM500,000 to support our community through three sponsorship programs and one scholarship program:
Under the KPMG Young Spark program, each KPMG office across Malaysia supports a local school in their community. Collectively in FY22, 134 students from the B40 community across ten schools were sponsored by the firm, amounting to RM110,500 in sponsorships . On top of that, each school were given 2 refurbished laptops worth RM1,200 each. Carrying on our aim to support B40 students by easing their financial burden, we also continue to support and maintain a long-term relationship with these schools.
