KeyBank Foundation supports organizations and programs that prepare individuals for thriving futures through three approaches:

1. Neighbors - Grants are designed to create safe, affordable, inclusive communities with thriving family homes and small businesses. The goals of the program include:

  • Affordable Housing and Homeownership: An increase in residency length and a decrease in foreclosure rates
  • Economically Self-Sufficient Families: Improved economic inclusion with community members accessing banking services and products
  • Safe, Healthy and Stable Communities: An increase in the values of homes as well as an uptick in the number of small businesses providing services and products to residents
  • Small Business Growth: The launch of more small businesses with an increase in job creation

2. Education - Grants help students prepare for fulfilling careers by providing access to high-quality education as well as offering support to help them achieve academically. Grants assist students with:

  • Preparation: Improvement in GPA and standardized test scores gets students ready to succeed
  • Access: Grants ensure more students than ever have access to financial resources for education
  • Attainment: Improvement in college enrollment and retention rates
  • Completion: Improved graduation rates

3. Workforce - Grants help adults achieve the skills, education and capabilities they need to succeed in current and future employment opportunities. Grants assist with:

  • Graduation: Improved graduation and certification program completion rates
  • Employment: With financial assistance, employment placement and retention rates increase
  • Financial Education: An increase in the number of individuals who receive this type of training means more workers have the tools they need to create financial wellness
