In June, KeyBank was recognized as one of the most community-minded companies in the nation, and named to the Points of Light’s “Civic 50” list, for the third time. The Civic 50 sets a national standard and creates a roadmap for companies seeking to best use their time, talent, and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities.

This year’s Civic 50 applicants were evaluated based on several criteria, including the resources applied to civic and community improvement and how community engagement activities support business interests. In addition, the Civic 50 analyzes how community engagement is supported by a company’s policies, and how a company measures the value of its community programs.

“We are honored to be recognized by Points of Light for the third year in a row,” said Margot Copeland, CEO and Chairman of KeyBank Foundation. “Service to our communities is part of Key’s cultural DNA. Through KeyBank Foundation, we support organizations that prepare people for thriving futures, through funding that focuses on education, workforce development, and neighbors, and through strong community service.”

Upcoming KeyBank community engagement activities are outlined in the company’s Community Benefits Plan, www.key.com/CBPlan, the largest community benefits plan in recent bank acquisition history, at $16.5 billion.
