KEYS – Fostering Philanthropy in Kosciusko County
Kosciusko Endowment Youth Services (KEYS) is the youth philanthropy program of the Kosciusko County Community Foundation and is comprised of twenty students who attend the four high schools located in Kosciusko County: Lakeland Christian Academy, Tippecanoe Valley, Warsaw and Wawasee. Students are selected by their school administration to join in eighth grade and remain active members in the program until they graduate from high school. The mission of KEYS is to work together to positively impact and improve education in our community by providing aid, now and for future generations. Members meet up once a month during the school year to practice philantropy and build leadership skills. Annually, KEYS grants approximately $20,000 to projects, programs, and curriculum that bring innovative aned educational resources to students throughout Kosciusko County.
