“Green” your community for just a few dollars a month

The recent TD Friends of the Environment Foundation ‘How Green Are You?’ Survey found that the majority of Canadians are dedicated to making green choices as part of their daily lives. In fact, when it comes to being environmentally-friendly, 96% of Canadians gave themselves a passing grade.

One simple way that you can help support environmental projects in your community is to donate to TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF). TD FEF allows Canadians to work together to donate funds to local community organizations dedicated to protecting Canada’s environment and wildlife. 100% of your donation goes to environmental projects in your community. TD FEF allows donors to set up regular monthly contributions for as little as $5 per month and each local TD FEF chapter decides what environmental and wildlife projects to fund.

In the last 18 years, TD FEF has provided more than $50 millionin support of over 18,000 environmental grassroots projects from coast to coast, including:

  • TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup: In 2007 alone, TD FEF’s contributions helped organize over 52,000 volunteers who cleaned 1,240 sites covering nearly 1,800 kilometres of shoreline, collecting more than 87,000 kilograms of garbage. To register for this year’s cleanup visit
  • Canadian Peregrine Foundation: Dedicated to the preservation and conservation of endangered and threatened birds of prey across Canada.
  • Vision 20/20: An environmental studies camp for junior high school students in Halifax. Students learn to explore their environment and to question what helps and harms the environment.
  • Safe Drinking Water Foundation: The Foundation’s Operation Water Drop program allows Canadian youth across the country to test the safety of their local water. Students learn about the importance of safe drinking water and its implications on the environment.
