KeyBank ranked No. 18 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.


The KeyBank Foundation has awarded a $30,000 grant to support The Immokalee Foundation’s Career Pathways Program. The program helps financially disadvantaged students prepare for their careers.

Through the Career Pathways Program, students are able to earn industry-recognized certifications and credentials or a college degree leading to professional careers in Business Management & Entrepreneurship, Education & Human Services Engineering & Construction Management and Healthcare.

“The success of any financial organization is predicated on the success of those in the community they serve,” said Noemi Y. Perez, President and CEO of The Immokalee Foundation. “Through their generous contribution to our Career Pathways Program, KeyBank Foundation is investing in the future of Southwest Florida — our collective potential as well as our shared success. I extend my heartfelt gratitude on behalf of the hardworking students of Immokalee.”

The Immokalee Foundation has supported students from kindergarten to postsecondary education for more than 31 years.

“KeyBank Foundation is committed to partnering with community organizations whose mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged populations in our neighborhoods through education, workforce development and community investment,” said Michael T. Schneider, Florida Market President and Key Private Bank Market Leader. “The Immokalee Foundation’s mission to prepare the next generation of professionals through education, career readiness and professional development for deserving students in Immokalee aligns perfectly with KeyBank’s philanthropic focus areas and we are proud to support their work.”
