KeyBank’s $150,000 Grant Boosts Diversity and Inclusion in Girl Scouts of Western Washington


KeyBank has generously donated $150,000 to the Girl Scouts of Western Washington (GSWW) in an effort to advance their objectives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This financial contribution will be instrumental in enabling communities that have been traditionally marginalized to engage in Girl Scout activities and camping experiences. This initiative aims to promote a culture of inclusivity and improve access for young people across Western Washington.

“A culture of diversity, equity and inclusion is a part of KeyBank’s corporate fabric and is reflected in everything Key does, including the ways we invest in our communities,” said Matt Hill, KeyBank’s Market President and Commercial Banking Sales Leader for the Seattle Cascades. “We are proud to support Girl Scouts of Western Washington as they engage a broad spectrum of youth and introduce them to skills and activities – from entrepreneurship and money management to goal setting and decision making – that will help them grow into accomplished, confident leaders.”

“Girl Scouts of Western Washington is committed to working for diversity, equity, and inclusion across our region so that all Girl Scouts feel a sense of belonging”, says Andrea Anderson, CEO of Girl Scouts of Western Washington. “We are grateful to our longtime partner KeyBank for highlighting the importance of this work and for investing in it. Our partnership will help eliminate financial barriers for approximately 20% or 3000 Girl Scouts across the Puget Sound region, ensuring they can participate in troops, camps, events, and more. 

Together, with KeyBank, we can ensure the Girl Scout experience is accessible to those who have been historically left out of our programming, so that Girl Scouts can continue to be an instrument of change, promoting equitable outcomes for all.”
