A long history of community involvement
We contribute to the well-being of the communities we serve through grants, scholarships, sponsorships, fundraising, volunteering and collaborative relationships with community partners.
Our vision is to be the better bank, which challenges us to exceed the norms of corporate giving to the communities we serve.
- In 2009, TD donated 1.30% of the rolling 5-year average of our pre-tax profits. The recommended corporate giving target is set at 1% by Imagine Canada.
- In the U.S., TD Bank donated 1.35% of our pre-tax profits in 2009. The Giving USA Foundation reports the average giving amount as 0.9%.
There are countless worthy causes that need support, but to make the greatest difference in the communities we serve, we target our donations and sponsorships to areas that are important to our stakeholders in Canada and the U.S.
We strive to make TD more inclusive for employees, customers and our communities, and this goal is reflected in our support of diversity initiatives from coast to coast to coast.
We are proud that many TD employees are eager to make a difference together in their communities through their fundraising efforts, volunteer hours and passion for the charities and causes they support. We look for every opportunity to engage our employees and customers in our community activities.
While our community programs in Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. each have their own characteristics, we share a number of common areas of focus.
TD employees are passionate supporters of United Way and other charities, raising over $5.4M in Canada.
