Your impact

Have you ever had to juggle too many things just to get through the day?

We all know that feeling.

Now imagine, you are raising kids and working multiple jobs just to make ends meet.

For many years that is exactly what Shonda did to get by. Thankfully, because of your contributions Keystone is there for Shonda when she needs a little extra help.

Shonda is featured in our 2019 annual fundraising appeal and she shared with us, “I got like four hours of sleep a day for 10 years. It was very hard but I always had the thought, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do.”

For Shonda, being able to visit Keystone’s food shelf helps her stretch her limited budget a little farther and gives her access to quality and healthy foods she needs. You make this possible!

“If there wasn’t a food shelf, I don’t know what I would do,” Shonda says gratefully.

If you ever questioned if your gift matters, please know that more people like Shonda need Keystone food shelf services than ever before.

Every day, people like Shonda turn to Keystone to help them through another day. Your support is needed more than ever.

With your gift today, you will provide nourishment to Shonda and thousands of neighbors in need in our community.

On behalf of Shonda and more than 8,000 people who will visit Keystone for help before year-end, THANK YOU for the gift you make TODAY!

You can increase your impact this month!

You can participate in our year end matching gift campaign, generously supported by a grant from the Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation. Increased annual contributions and new gifts will be matched by this grant.

Your support this year will go even farther to support your neighbors in need!

Strengthening our Community Together

Keystone’s mission is to build capacity in individuals and families so they can improve their quality of life. We depend on donors and volunteers to make sure all community members have access to basic needs and other community services that fulfill this important mission. With your help, we’ve been raising up individuals and neighborhoods in St. Paul and Ramsey County for 80 years.

Today we face new challenges. With shifts in funding and increased needs in the community, our individual and business partners as well as our social enterprises are helping us to close the gap between need and resources.

Keystone Community Services is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our Federal Identification number is 41-0693924. We are committed to best practices, including being transparent about our program outcomes and financial information. We invite you to read our annual reports for more information.
