The Acceleration Fund, part of Keystone’s 2020-2024 Comprehensive Campaign, is expanding supportive services in our community. People in our community are needed extra support right now as they stretch their budgets even farther to manage the rising cost of living — higher rent, utilities, costs of groceries increasing — and when people are in need they turn to Keystone for support. This additional 2 million dollars in support is ensuring Keystone has the resources needed right now to rapidly expand existing support and add new programs that are addressing the unique needs in our community.
Since we launched the Acceleration Fund in October 2020, our community has contributed over 1.8 million dollars thus far towards our $2 million goal.
We are pursuing comprehensive strategies to ensure that both immediate and long-term support is available for everyone in our community who needs it. As part of our comprehensive Campaign, we are in the beginning stages of developing a long-term solution for a new Community Food Site that will increase Keystone’s capacity to provide food to our neighbors.
