Key Initiative

Key Initiative is a group of young professionals who are dedicated to making our community a better place by fundraising and “friendraising” for us.


About Key Initiative

The Key Initiative (KI) committee was formed in 2008 to open new doors for the charity by engaging young professionals to host fundraising events to support the families we serve and build awareness of our organization. This group is made up of about 30 up-and-comers.

With over one third of Metro Orlando’s population between the ages of 20 and 40, our Key Initiative group keeps us connected with our young, vibrant community.


Key Initiative Events

KI host four events each year to benefit RMHCCF. Stay tuned for more information on each one!
