Speridian is proud to have supported KPMG’S Family for Literacy (KFFL) program through a Royal Flush sponsorship of a fundraising Casino Night in Sacramento, California, held on October 26, 2014. K P Hari, Managing Partner, Speridian Technologies, attended the event and pledged our commitment to promote literacy in the local communities. This event was the main fundraiser to fund reading events and book distributions for 12 low-income schools in the Sacramento area. Every $2.50 raised through the event will put a brand-new book in the hands of a child in need. We are glad to learn from the organizers that our sponsorship has made a significant impact in the schools that are supported through the KFFL program and their literacy partner, First Book.
KPMG’s Family for Literacy Program
KPMG’s Family for Literacy program is focused on serving children at every stage of their academic career through corporate citizenship programs. Knowing that strong reading skills are the basis for future success, and understanding that the toughest roadblock to children’s literacy in low-income communities is a lack of books, KFFL was established in 2008 to combat childhood illiteracy. Managed in collaboration with First Book, KFFL provides new books to children from low-income families.
