The Keystone Alliance

The Keystone Alliance was founded in 2009 through a unique partnership between two like-minded nonprofits with similar missions, Glenkirk and Search, Inc. We formed the Keystone Alliance with the belief that by joining forces and working collaboratively, both organizations could strengthen their missions and grow their programs.


The Keystone Alliance was created in the interest of generating administrative efficiencies and sharing best practices. Today, Glenkirk’s administrative overhead is just 8.5% of its total expenses. Glenkirk and Search have benefitted greatly from sharing innovations and best practices with one another.


Keystone's services include executive management, strategic planning, financial services, IT, third-party Human Resources, and communications. These services are delivered by a highly-seasoned team of nonprofit administrative professionals. Keystone's CEO has over 30 years of experience in the Illinois nonprofit system and a proven track-record of administrative and programmatic innovation. Its team averages 15 years of service, with 25% of its staff having direct program management experience.


Benefits of Affiliation

State and Federal funding cuts, as well as ever increasing costs for everything from health insurance to fuel to utility bills means that, now more than ever, nonprofits are looking to drive down costs. Keystone Alliance makes this a reality by consolidating administrative services, sharing technology solutions among Alliance organizations and leveraging our combined size to purchase goods and services at a lower price.
