Charitable Gifts & Sponsorships

Celebrating over 33 Years of Community Involvement. The Keeling Family Foundation was established in 1986 by Marvin T. Keeling to provide a permanent avenue for charitable giving. We have supported many charities through a variety of fundraising activities over the past 33 years.

We are now providing new training and certification for manufacturing and construction trades in our offices throughout the region. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation goes to support the training and employment programs that we have developed. Employers are hiring our graduates and have expressed a need of developing more job-ready candidates to fill the more than 33,000 vacant manufacturing and building sector jobs in the Chicagoland area alone. We provide opportunity for men and women, 18-30-year-olds, veterans and at-risk youth who express a willingness to learn.
