Data Citizens with Purpose® Program

Advisory Professionals who participate in the literacy program will apply their new skills through KPMG’s Data Citizens with Purpose® Program, which offers pro-bono data-driven insights to non-profits. The program is helping more than 80 nonprofit organizations across the country address a broad range of social, inclusion, diversity and environmental issues.

Through this program, KPMG recently helped the Hispanic IT Executive Council (HITEC) gain a clearer picture of their data to support the implementation of a new customer relationship management tool and to drive more value for the Hispanic technical community. “The KPMG Data Citizens with Purpose program has given HITEC a great gift, and that’s the gift of knowledge. We now have a holistic view into the data that makes us such a unique organization and will enable us to impact and change more lives in the future,” said Susana Ramirez, Director of Corporate Development at HITEC.

“Based on the expected enrollment in the Data Citizens with Purpose® Program, we anticipate being able to provide over 40,000 hours of data & analytics pro-bono services to non-profits across the U.S.  This program has proven that even in this complex time, we can safely create a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Carl Carande, Vice Chair – Advisory, KPMG LLP.
