CLEVELAND, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- KeyBank today announced it formalized a National Advisory Council as part of its $16.5 billion National Community Benefits Plan.

Launched earlier this year, KeyBank's five-year National Community Benefits plan is focused on supporting people and neighborhoods by providing safe and decent affordable housing, small business and farm lending, mortgage lending to low-to-moderate income communities, and philanthropy. Detailed information about KeyBank's National Community Benefits Plan can be found at:

The plan was developed in partnership with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) and included input from over 80 community organizations across the 15 states served by KeyBank. Several of these organizations and members of NCRC will be part of the National Advisory Council.

"The National Community Benefits plan embodies and amplifies KeyBank's purpose to help clients and communities thrive," said Beth Mooney, Chairman and CEO, KeyCorp. "We believe in the power of partnership and accountability as we carry out this mission. The National Advisory Council will ensure that we have both as we move forward."

"KeyBank's commitment raised the bar," said John Taylor, President & CEO of NCRC. "Leadership matters, and when it mattered most Beth Mooney and her team stepped up and delivered for communities. We look forward to a meaningful partnership of mutual accountability as we work together to build stronger communities."

The National Advisory Council, whose members will serve in a voluntary capacity, will meet at least twice a year to:

  • assess KeyBank's progress against the goals of the National Community Benefits Plan;
  • provide insight and counsel on products and services; and,
  • remain informed about KeyBank's strategies around community investment.

The first meeting of the national council was held on August 3, 2017, in Cleveland, Ohio. Additionally, KeyBank has also formed regional advisory committees in: Buffalo, NY; Albany, NY; and the Great Lakes Region (including Ohio, Indiana and Michigan). The regional councils held their first meetings during the week of August 7.
