Community Investment WHY IT’S MATERIAL TO TD


We want to see communities thrive. Our reputation and success depend on the well-being of communities that support our business, as well as the relationships we have in those communities. Employees, customers and other stakeholders also look to TD to play an active role in helping address important community issues.


Management Approach


We target our contributions in four areas: financial literacy and education, affordable housing in the U.S., environmental stewardship and creating opportunities for young people. These priorities were chosen based on customer and employee feedback, as well as insight into where we can make the most difference. In each area, we also look for opportunities to support diversity and inclusion.


Driven by the findings of our materiality assessment, this report updates our progress in the two areas of financial education and affordable housing. For details on our overall community investment program, please refer to our 2015 Canadian Community Investment Snapshot or our 2015 U.S. Community Investment Snapshot.

• In Canada, the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) – a national charity that supports grassroots environmental initiatives – distributed $4.68 million to 1,002 projects. Besides funding through TD FEF, we also made corporate donations of $9.2 million to community environmental projects. For more information, see the Environment section.


• TD employees volunteered 118,971 hours in their communities, as logged on the TD Volunteer Network website, up from 96,000 hours in 2014.


• We made 965 volunteer grants worth $538,270 to charities in which TD employees volunteered 40 or more hours of their time.


• Employees also organized fundraising campaigns, the largest of which was TD’s annual employee-giving campaign administered by the United Way, raising over $17.3 million for registered charities in North America. In addition, corporate United Way donations were more than $6.1 million.


Challenge: How do you engage a large, distributed workforce in regular volunteering?


TD has a very active volunteer network, but driving awareness of new and ongoing volunteer opportunities is a struggle with 84,000 employees spread out over 2,400 locations. Adding to this challenge, employees already have a heavy workload.


Response:


In response, we are finding creative ways to keep up the volunteering momentum. For example, we are embedding community engagement into existing employee events, such as team-building activities to include a volunteering component. In 2016, we will survey a sample of our employees in Canada and the U.S. to determine how we can evolve our TD volunteer programs to better suit employee needs, enabling them to give back to the community while balancing their work.
