"The TD Charitable Foundation's US$30,000 give goes a long way toward helping us to provide much-needed services to those individuals and families who are at risk of hunger … a number that has steadily increased as a result of a struggling economy. Your gift will also help us to educate others about the issue of hunger and how the food bank's many programs are working to address it."
Lynn Brantley, President and CEO, Capital Area Foodbank, Washington, DC
TD Securities employees raised over $1 million as part of the Underwriting Hope Charity Auction. The proceeds were directed to a number of children’s charities, including a therapy centre for children with autism and support for men, women and children living with cancer.
Health and Human Services (U.S.)
We’ve continued to partner with key non-profit, public and private organizations to meet the ongoing demand for basic services like heat, shelter and food. In 2010, the TD Charitable Foundation made 505 grants totalling US$5.1 million to provide basic human services to those in need.
In a year when food banks reported a 30 per cent increase in demand, the TD Charitable Foundation helped replenish essential supplies by donating US$680,000 to 32 food banks from Maine to Florida, providing 2.7 million meals to those in need.
TD employees are passionate about their support for the United Way. For the 2009 campaign, Canadian and U.S. employees raised CDN$7 million and US$1.4 million respectively, which went towards helping thousands of people in need. For the coming campaign, our Group President and CEO, Ed Clark, is chairing the Toronto campaign. Learn about the many ways we support United Way.
