For the past seven years, 44-time PGA TOUR winner, 3-time Masters winner Phil Mickelson and KPMG have teamed up three programs designed to make an impact in fighting illiteracy along with empowering the next generation of women leaders.
This successful partnership began back in 2012 when Phil and KPMG started Blue for Books. Blue for Books is a program that donates three children’s books to kids in need for every sale of the blue KPMG hat. This hat is worn by Lefty, LGPA Tour players Stacy Lewis and Mariah Stackhouse. The program has donated over 200,000 books since Blue for Books launched seven years ago.
A year after the Blue for Books launch, the program expanded with the Inspiring Win Program. Each time Phil, Stacy or Mariah wins a tournament, KPMG’s Family for Literacy program donates 5,000 new books. Their people also get together to renovate a library at a local school in that community.
Phil’s win back in February at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is the latest to contribute. Due to this victory, KPMG and the Inspiring Win Program will enhance a library in the San Francisco United School District.
“KPMG has started doing a lot for education and I love the association in helping libraries, helping other communities when I win,” Mickelson said of the program.
