In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, KeyBank is pledging $25,000 to the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change.

Established in 1968 by Coretta Scott King, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change is a global destination, resource center, and community institution for over a quarter century. The King Center is dedicated to educating the world on the life, legacy and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., inspiring new generations to carry forward his unfinished work, strengthen causes and empower change-makers who are continuing his efforts today.

“Diversity, equity and inclusion is central to KeyBank and in the communities we serve,” said Elizabeth Gurney, director of Corporate Philanthropy for KeyBank. “On behalf of all KeyBank’s teammates, we are proud to honor Dr. King’s Legacy by supporting the important and necessary work at The King Center.”

In addition, KeyBank’s African Heritage Key Business Impact and Networking Group is leading its fourth annual Random Acts of Kindness Challenge. This is an effort to continue Dr. King’s legacy of fostering an environment of respect, peace, and inclusion and to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a day all can demonstrate service, volunteerism and supporting neighbors.

From January 17 through January 31, the group is encouraging all KeyBank teammates to make a small gesture each day by performing random acts of kindness to and with those whom are different racially, socioeconomically, or ethnically to help spread kindness throughout KeyBank and the communities they serve.
