Skip Watson joins INHP’s board of directors

KeyBank Regional Sales Executive Skip Watson has been appointed as a contributing member to INHP’s 24-person board, joining appointees from the City of Indianapolis, United Way and the community at large.

Watson seeks to continue to grow the long-established partnership already in place between the two organizations. Last year, The KeyBank Foundation announced a $500,000 grant to INHP. That grant is currently supporting transformation on the near east side of Indianapolis by helping low-to moderate-income families afford home maintenance projects they may be putting off, which may include repairing roofs, replacing windows, fixing HVAC systems and updating exterior paint or siding. Families who qualify may receive a loan up to $12,500 to make home repairs with a zero percent interest rate and deferred payments.

“At KeyBank, we’re always looking for ways to create transformative change in our communities. Our relationship with INHP has already shown results and will continue to grow,” said Skip Watson. “I’m excited to offer my expertise and influence to help move this organization forward.”

The grant is part of KeyBank’s five-year goal under its Community Benefits Plan of $8.8 billion in community development lending and investment commitments.
