Sponsor Spotlight: KeyBank

By: Casey Macaulay Published: April 2nd, 2015

2015_YAT_KeyBankThis month our sponsor spotlight is highlighting our partnership with KeyBank.  KeyBank is the sponsor of The Bank at our Young AmeriTowne Headquarters location, and their recent shop revamp ensures an authentic experience for our 5th grade bankers. They will be the presenting sponsors of our second AmeriTowne On the Road, which we hope will be operational in the Denver Metro Area by the end of 2016.

About KeyBank

KeyBank is the only bank headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, but has a strong presence in 31 states across the country. One of the nation’s largest banks, they provide deposit, lending, cash management and investment services to small to medium businesses and individuals. They have set strong examples across the banking community for exemplary community involvement, having ranked #1 among all financial companies on The Civic 50, a compilation of socially conscious companies with a commitment to community investment, as well as work place diversity, as they’ve consistently been ranked on DiversityInc’s Top Companies for Diversity. Their CEO, Beth Mooney, has been named “The Most Powerful Woman in Banking” for two years in a row for “wielding influence to make a difference in the lives of her customers and community.” We are honored to be supported by such an impressive institution.

KeyBank has been one of our longest standing partnerships, going back all the way to August 2001 and they have sponsored The Bank in Young AmeriTowne since 2002. The students who work in The Bank in Towne are tellers responsible for customer service, computer operators tasked with entering transactions, as well as the president and vice president who manage loan repayments. KeyBank has provided business cards for the students, which they love taking home with them. They consider their AmeriTowne location to be their smallest bank branch. Our second pop-up version of the program, On the Road, will be made possible through KeyBank’s generosity and will strictly service smaller schools in the Denver Metro Area. In addition, KeyBank has always been supportive of our Young Entrepreneur program, providing sponsorship to our annual Celebration for Young Entrepreneurs event.

Our partnership with KeyBank has been integral to enhancing our hands-on learning programming, and for expanding the reach of our programs. We can’t thank them enough for their support, and look forward to continuing to work with them.
