Investing in important community initiatives has been a longstanding tradition with the TD Bank Group and their $250,000 donation to the PotashCorp children’s museum continues that tradition.
“As a part of the TD family I knew getting involved in this project would make a difference,” says Robin Chapman, Vice President and Investment Advisor with TD and Chair of the Children’s Discovery Museum “Kid Approved” capital campaign. “This gift from TD is meaningful; it illustrates TD values supporting our children, our community and our province. This gift will move us one step closer to our goal of building a world class children’s museum and providing the necessary tools for our children to grow, play and learn.”
TD’s community investment is focussed in four areas; education and financial literacy, creating opportunities for young people and the environment. The new PotashCorp Children’s Discovery Museum touches several points within TD’s criteria for community investment and TD is proud to provide the financial support.
“Young people are our future, and at TD, we believe that every young person should have the opportunities and support they need to reach their full potential,” says Nicole Davis, TD Canada Trust Manager of Community Banking for the Prairie Region. “This includes a significant focus at TD on ensuring that children start out their lives with a good foundation in basic literacy and reading.”
This dedication to building stronger communities is imbedded in TD’s core values and is a source of pride at TD. TD enters a market, not only to serve the area’s financial needs, but also to play a part in bettering the community for years to come. It is this commitment that differentiates TD from some of its competitors.
“It’s incredibly important to us that we do our part to strengthen communities and positively impact the lives of the people who live in them,” says Davis.
The $250,000 gift to the new PotashCorp Children’s Discovery Museum is in addition to the $6-million that’s already been raised. With the goal set at $10-million, the “Kid Approved” capital campaign is 60% of the way there.
Thank you TD Bank Group! Your generous gift will leave an incredible footprint on the new Children’s Discovery Museum.
The gift that keeps on giving!
