Every year thousands of KeyBank teammates across the country contribute their time and talents to local nonprofit organizations to give back to their local communities for Key’s annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day®.
Communities thrive when volunteers unite. That’s why thousands of KeyBank employees volunteer each year, taking responsibility to contribute to the well-being of their local communities. When individuals come together to dedicate their time and talent to serve others, lives are brightened, and communities are transformed for the better in meaningful ways.
Neighbors Make the Difference Day began in 1991, when a group of Alaska employees volunteered for service projects and gave the day its title. By 1993, the idea had swept across many of the communities Key serves and became an official day of employee volunteerism. It is now the hallmark of Key’s commitment to its communities and a leading corporate volunteerism effort in America.
