The award recognizes KeyBank as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.

Selection focuses on engagement

The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more, and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program including investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.

“Our purpose is to help our clients and communities thrive. That purpose comes to life through our employees. We believe the basis of change lies in acts of service, meaningful investments and community partnerships. Collectively we can bring hope, opportunity, and dignity to all our neighborhoods. This is even more critical in 2020 given the many challenges facing our communities and our nation.”
Adam Warner, president of Key Equipment Finance

Nationally, KeyBank has made an $18 million philanthropic commitment for COVID-19 response throughout the most vulnerable communities.

Neighbors serve communities

KeyBank also said its annual day of service, Neighbors Make The Difference Day, became a virtual event in 2020 where employees have more than 9,000 volunteer events to choose from throughout June and July.

The Civic 50 survey was administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform The Civic 50 scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
