Points of Light, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change, named KeyBank a 2023 honoree of The Civic 50, recognizing the top community-minded companies in the United States according to an annual survey. KeyBank was also named the 2023 Financial Sector leader. This is the 10th consecutive time KeyBank has been named to The Civic 50.

Now in its eleventh year, The Civic 50 is a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how leading companies are moving social impact, civic engagement and community to the core of their business. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs: investment of resources and volunteerism, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.

“Key is a values-forward, purpose-driven company,” said Eric Fiala, Head of Corporate Responsibility and Community Relations. “Every day, our 18,000 colleagues show up ready to support our clients, our communities, and each other. From affordable housing to climate change to diversity, equity, and inclusion – we recognize the interconnectedness of the issues facing our neighbors and neighborhoods.”

“Companies play a critical role in creating thriving, participatory communities,” said Diane Quest, interim president and CEO, Points of Light. “Companies like KeyBank set a model for others, showing how to best use employee talent, business assets and integration to create meaningful impact, and we’re thrilled to uplift and celebrate their work as an honoree of The Civic 50 2023.”

The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact, and the results are analyzed by VeraWorks. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate community engagement.
