TD Bank and the TD Charitable Foundation announced plans to continue its Bring Change initiative through 2017. TD’s Bring Change community program helps raise funds for charities and community members in need within TD’s footprint on a hyperlocal level, with local stores serving as fundraising hubs. Rather than simply providing a check to a local organization, the Bring Change program encourages the community to rally around an organization or individual in need, with TD store managers coordinating both a monetary and physical donation drive at their local stores. The company and/or its foundation also make a contribution. The Bring Change campaign first launched in May 2015 as a way for TD Bank to give back to the communities in which it operates. So far, TD has contributed $1.6 million to the communities it calls home. This year’s campaign focus includes supporting affordable housing in low- and moderate-income areas, helping people recover from natural disasters, funding the arts and developing programs that educate and inspire children.
