One of life’s greatest gifts is being able to reach out to help others in need. One of Keyot’s core values is “Care About You.” As with many organizations and individuals, we believe that 2020 has given us ample reasons to want to do more to support our communities. For two weeks in June, Keyot doubled our standard company match for donations made by active Keyot employees and consultants to organizations of their choosing.
We were overwhelmed by the generosity by our associates, and the range of organizations that benefited from this collective outpouring of support for those in need. Those organizations included:
- The Loveland Foundation: Making it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support.
- A Mother’s Love: Empowering vulnerable families headed by single mothers with the tools they need to succeed.
- Lake Street Council: Currently helping to rebuild Lake Street, Minneapolis’ small businesses and community organizations.
- Best Buddies: Creating opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
- NAACP: Ensuring a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
- ACLU: Defending and preserving the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
- The Food Bank: Providing nourishing food to strengthen the community.
- Jeremiah Program: Preparing determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readying their children to succeed in school, and reducing generational dependence on public assistance.
- Feeding America: Feeding America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engaging our country in the fight to end hunger.
- YWCA: Eliminating racism, empowering women, standing up for social justice, helping families and strengthening communities.
- Network for Good: Offering easy-to-use fundraising software and tools for nonprofits.
- Sheridan Story: Fighting hunger in their community by filling the gaps to food access that children face during weekends, summers and extended breaks.
- Girls Who Code: Aiming to support and increase the number of women in computer science by equipping young women with the necessary computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.
- St. Jude Children’s Hospital: Treating the toughest childhood cancers and pediatric diseases.
