The Ready Commitment
As part of The Ready Commitment at TD, we are investing in our communities, targeting $1 billion in philanthropy by 2030. In 2019, TD provided $126 million to support non-profit organizations across North America and the U.K.
The TD Ready Challenge is an annual North American initiative that has up to ten $1 million grants available to support innovative solutions connected to The Ready Commitment. After two years, TD has awarded $20 million for 20 impactful solutions that will help open doors for a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow.
Elevate the quality of the environment so that people and economies can thrive
TD is the first corporate sponsor of ALUS Canada’s New Acre Project™, which helps farmers transform uneconomic or sensitive portions of their farmland into ecologically friendly projects, helping to improve the environment and local communities.
20 U.S. and Canadian cities received 2019 TD Green Space Grants to help support green infrastructure development and community green space expansion in communities across our North American footprint.
Improve access to tools and programs to help people live their lives with greater financial confidence
TD Mindpower initiative saw TD employees volunteer over 1,500 hours in 2019 to lend their business expertise to help community organizations enhance their data and analytics capacity.
TD has worked with leading technology education company Everfi to educate students and adults to help them build stronger financial habits through an online course.
Support more equitable health outcomes for all
TD supports The Moncton Hospital in New Brunswick and its Provincial Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Program, helping to increase access to care for adolescents struggling with mental illness.
TD is helping to improve access to health care by supporting CoLab Philadelphia, which converted a travel trailer into a mobile, multi-use platform to directly connect Philadelphians with health services by conducting free health screenings and providing health education in public spaces.
Create the opportunities people need to connect with their community and have a sense of belonging
TD launched an internal North American executive task force on refugees which will build on TD’s work to date providing access to financial services, employment and financial education to new immigrants.
TD provided a $1.5 million investment in a new arts centre in New York City, The Shed, to fund complimentary performance and exhibition tickets for underserved communities, and to support the Open Call program, which commissions works from artists who have not yet received major institutional recognition.
