Anti-corruption: In the community 2007/2008
DTT member firms have a long tradition of actively supporting the communities where their professionals live and work. Each year thousands of DTT member firm employees around the world participate in various activities to support their communities and DTT member firms contribute financial and pro-bono support to develop and sustain local communities. Below are select examples of member firm activities related to anti-corruption, fraud, and bribery:
Sponsorships, donations, and charity
More than 15 DTT member firms around the world support the mission of Junior Achievement Worldwide (JA) to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, business, and economics. In addition to providing financial support, nearly 2,000 DTT member firm partners, principals, directors, and staff volunteer in JA classrooms, making the collective efforts of DTT member firms one of JA's largest corporate volunteers. DTT Consulting Global Managing Director, Ainar Aijala, serves as JA's Chairman of the Board, and more than 50 other member firm employees serve on local boards around the world.
Pro-bono services and volunteering
In March 2008, more than 300 tax professionals from Deloitte U.S. Firms* assisted low-income families with preparing their tax returns, thus helping the families ensure that their taxes are filed in a timely and correct manner and that the low-income families get the refunds and credits to which they are entitled. Since 2003, Deloitte United State's* Community Tax Assistance Program in Atlanta alone has processed returns for 2,307 families and generated US$2.9 million in gross refunds and earned income tax credits. The Atlanta efforts are the model for similar activities in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.
*As used in this reporting, "Deloitte U.S. Firms" means Deloitte LLP and its subsidiaries.
