The TD Charitable Foundation serves individuals, families and businesses in the communities where TD Bank operates. The Foundation has donated more than $53 million to charitable organizations in the U.S. since its inception in 2002.

We strengthened our efforts in 2009, awarding 1,518 grants totalling $13.9 million. We provided an additional $5.4 million through community sponsorships and $700,000 through employee contributions.

To make a meaningful difference we concentrate our giving on three main areas:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Education and Financial Literacy
  • Health and Human Services

We place special emphasis on improving the well-being of low- to moderate-income individuals and communities. In 2009, in excess of 50% of our U.S. Foundation giving focused on these three areas.
