KPMG LLP has been selected by the YAI/National Institute for People with Disabilities Network as its 2005 Corporation of the Year. Past honorees include Pfizer, Avon Products, RJR Nabisco and Time.

KPMG chairman and chief executive Timothy P. Flynn accepted the annual award at a recent ceremony in Manhattan. The YAI/NIPD Network is a network of not-for-profit health and human services agencies for people with developmental and learning disabilities.

"This award recognizes KPMG for their long and continued commitment to helping create jobs for people with disabilities, and also their support of YAI's fundraising activities," said Dr. Joel M. Levy, chief executive of the YAI/NIPD Network, in a statement.

KPMG is a founding member and active participant in YAI/NIPD's Business Advisory Council, and is actively involved in the organization's Central Park Challenge, an annual family event featuring 3K and 5K runs, and other activities that help raise money to support the agency's programs. In addition, KPMG employees have volunteered and worked with children with special needs and have helped the agency through individual and corporate fundraising activities.
