Growing With New York for More Than 190 Years

Keybank Has a Proud Tradition With New York State

Since our founding in Albany in 1825, we’ve been helping the state's clients and communities thrive – from Western New York to the Capital Region and beyond. Today, we're continuing with that tradition.

Growing Careers & Leaders

KeyBank is proud to have 2,600 employees serving New York State and enhancing the future for our clients and communities.

We’re also dedicated to diversity and inclusion. Just ask two of our champions for women in business – New York’s own Ruth H. Mahoney and Fran O’Rourke. Both received Trailblazer Awards from the Women’s Fund of the Capital Region.

Growing Our Commitment to Nonprofits

We're transforming communities through the KeyBank Foundation. Our New York employees have volunteered more than 300,000 hours of their time and, with Key, contributed more than $3.5 million to local nonprofits since 2004.

At Albany Medical Center, we're helping employees become registered nurses through donations to the hospital's "Grow Our Own" work-study program, which funds tuition and paid time off.

Growing Our Communities

Growing Businesses, Large & Small

We're helping businesses plan for a better future. Like the growing nanotechnology industry in Albany and Utica, where we’ve financed several major projects. We've also funded New York’s healthcare system for well over a century, as well as the state’s agencies, public schools, nonprofits and more.
