Keystone Community Builders commit to a monthly gift, ensuring financial stability and sustaining vital services.
Here to build our community.
Today. Tomorrow. Every Day.
Keystone provides support and opportunities for our neighbors in need every day and has been doing so for more than 75 years. That’s why we need passionate, generous donors like you to support your neighbors in need. The Keystone Community Builder program is one way to make an ongoing difference in the lives of people in our community.
Community Builders commit to a monthly gift to support Keystone’s programs, ensuring financial stability and sustaining the vital services needed by more than 30,000 people. Monthly gifts go directly to support Keystone’s core programs including food shelf services, academic and enrichment programs for youth, and senior services like Meals on Wheels.
Giving monthly in any amount is simple and worthwhile. Your gift builds a strong community and helps your neighbors today and every day of the year.
We have two easy ways to become a Community Builder:
Use our online giving form, give a gift of $10 or more and check “monthly” to make your donation recurring.
Call us at 651-645-0349 to enroll in the Keystone Community Builder program.
Giving Monthly is Simple and Worthwhile
“Why do I give to Keystone? Because I can. I have enough. I have a job, a house and food security. Members of our community don’t. It is that simple. Beyond this, being a sustaining donor of Keystone is a statement of belief. I believe in the power of individuals coming together as a community. The services in the organization’s title are exactly that: local people working to make the community stronger. The need is ongoing so I choose to help provide predictable income so that Keystone can carry services and support throughout the year and into the future.“ ~ Karen

Keystone’s Programs are Essential:
As you know, the Governor Walz issued an Executive Order directing Minnesotans to “Stay At Home” through April 10th. Keystone is an “essential” business and is part of the Twin Cities’ critical sector response to COVID-19. With this information, we will continue to operate our food shelf, crisis services, meals on wheels and case management programs that support our most vulnerable residents in St. Paul. The executive order also defines “workers” and “personnel” as employees, contractors, vendors and volunteers. This clearly allows our dedicated and wonderful volunteers to continue serving at Keystone during this time. We will have more limited staff in our buildings but remain committed to offering vital support to those who need it.
Programs that are available to the community:
Meals on Wheels deliveries are continuing and staff are modifying operations to ensure safety of the staff, participants and volunteers.
Food shelf operations, including Foodmobile distributions, have been modified to ensure the safety of staff, participants and volunteers but are open Monday – Friday to provide vital food support to people in the community.
Express Bike Shop is open for service repair only. In accordance with the Minnesota stay at home guidelines, bicycle repair shops have been identified as an essential service. To limit person to person contact we ask that you call ahead 651-644-9660 to schedule a bike service repair appointment. Full information is available at exbike.com.
Our youth afterschool programs and active senior programs are canceled as well as any large gatherings in our community centers. AARP Tax Assistance is also canceled until further notice.
We are actively monitoring the situation and will implement any additional strategies when necessary. Stay tuned for updates as things are rapidly changing.
