Partners and employees at KPMG have pursued a variety of efforts in response to the effects of Hurricane Katrina, including contributing substantial relief funds, establishing an internal firm Web site to match the needs of affected employees in the Gulf Coast, and providing individual support to hurricane relief programs.

In the fundraising component, the firm is matching individual employee donations to the KPMG Disaster Relief Fund and has removed the annual cap of $150,000 on voluntary employee contributions. This match, combined with contributions by partners and employees, has enabled KPMG to raise more than $900,000 toward the disaster relief effort, and the firm expects to exceed the more than $1 million raised by the firm for victims of the Asian tsunami.
