KPM’s commitment to our community goes beyond the professional services we provide. It is KPM’s professionals and our culture that make us unique. While focused on promoting KPM’s core values of innovation, respect, teamwork, trust, spirit, and balance, you will find KPM’s professionals serving on boards, in leadership positions, and volunteering for community organizations. The culture that shapes KPM is one of service, as we are dedicated to the communities in which we live and work. KPM believes in building stronger communities through the commitment of time, resources, and expertise and understands you must lead by example to create engaged societies.

As such, in 2015 KPM launched a community-focused initiative called KPM CARES (Community Action Required Engaged Societies). Four unique firm programs make up this innovative community outreach solution. The firm’s programs are comprised of Clients with a Cause, Community Cash, Helping Hands, and Membership Matters.

  • Clients with a Cause – fiscally supports non-profit clients and promotes awareness through staff donations and firm promotions
  • Community Cash – encourages community involvement and firm recognition via employee-driven sponsorship opportunities
  • Helping Hands – firm wide volunteer opportunities to provide hands-on experience for character development and team building
  • Membership Matters – encourages professional development and community involvement through board service and civic endeavors

Ultimately, it is our belief that our clients are the best reflection of our firm and in their own words can say this of KPM, “KPM’s accountants are dedicated, and they have a personal touch that we appreciate in our working relationships. They have a deep knowledge and understanding of our business and needs and continue to become more valuable as they grow,” Sally Hargis, Vice President/Chairman | Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company.
