Investing in Communities: KeyBank Exceeds Community Benefits Plan Financial Commitments

Published 39 minutes ago

Proposed by KeyBank

In 2021, Key proudly concluded its groundbreaking five-year, $16.5 billion National Community Benefits Plan. During the plan period, we provided more than $26.5 billion in loans and investments to communities across America, exceeding the plan’s total financial commitments.

Exceeding our National Community Benefits Plan commitments has provided access to capital for neighborhoods and neighbors who have often faced barriers to financial support. These investments have supported affordable housing and community development projects nationwide; loans to small businesses and individuals in IMT communities; and philanthropic efforts focused on education, workforce development, and building safe and vital neighborhoods.

After meeting the overall financial commitments of our initial National Community Benefits Plan a year ahead of schedule, Key announced an extension and expansion of our plan in early 2021, committing to invest more than $40 billion dollars in the communities we serve.

To ensure our plan continues to better serve our communities, we worked with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) to gather community feedback throughout our footprint. Key and the NCRC hosted seven community listening sessions in 2021 to learn what matters most to the communities we serve. We also gathered input from Key’s National and Regional Advisory Councils. These listening sessions, combined with the impact we have seen in the first five years of the plan, are actively shaping our community investments.
