KPMG Gift to Riverton School
A gift to Riverton School used for books and promotion of literacy.
The Foundation for Portland Public Schools is pleased to announce that audit, tax and advisory firm KPMG LLP has provided a generous gift to Riverton School that will enable the school to purchase books and school supplies through First Book (https://firstbook.org/) for its students to read over the summer.
According to Riverton School Principal Ann Hanna, “KPMG’s generous gift to Riverton will directly support our summer reading program, and promote the importance of reading at home. We were able to use the gift from KPMG to purchase over 900 high-quality children’s books from First Book for our students. We will be giving the books out at our Annual Family Literacy Night on June 6th. All students will receive the gift of books to start or add to an at- home library. We are so grateful to KPMG for their generous support of our students’ literacy skills. Having books at home to read over the summer will help many of our students to continue developing their reading skills.”
“At KPMG, we believe that childhood literacy is a key factor in preparing children for a lifetime of success. It means a great deal to be able to support literacy efforts here in Portland through our KPMG Family for Literacy program,” states Jane Phelan, Manager, KPMG.
This gift directly aligns with the Achievement goal of the Portland Promise, the Portland Public Schools’ strategic plan.
