In March 2018, TD launched a new corporate citizenship platform called The Ready Commitment—a multi-year program to open doors for a more inclusive tomorrow. This new platform was developed to help individuals and communities succeed in a changing world by addressing their most pressing needs.
What We're Focusing On
TD has always invested deeply into our communities; The Ready Commitment gives us a framework for how we think about these investments. As always, we'll focus on the needs of the communities we serve, but now with a larger lens on the collective impacts we're able to make through these four drivers of change:
Financial Security: Providing access to tools and programs to help people live their lives with greater financial confidence.
Vibrant Planet: Supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy through low-carbon lending, asset management, urban green space, and other programs.
Connected Communities: Creating more opportunities for people to get involved with local initiatives, fostering a feeling of belonging.
Better Health: Supporting research, solutions, and technology that create more equitable health outcomes for all.
Current initiatives including TD Charitable Foundation programs like Housing for Everyone and the Major Grants Initiative fit squarely into The Ready Commitment's four drivers, as do our diversity initiatives and environmental programs like TD Tree Days. To keep pace with a rapidly changing world, we'll continually evolve our themes for relevance, and remain committed to focusing on what's most important to TD's priorities and the needs of our local communities.
Going forward, we'll be evaluating our programs and investments to ensure we are meeting the needs of our communities. We'll also introduce new opportunities that further our mission under the four drivers. Communities are at the heart of everything we do at TD, and The Ready Commitment is an amazing demonstration of our core beliefs as a company. I think TD is extremely fortunate to have this extraordinary opportunity to effect real change in communities across our footprint— it's very exciting to think about what's in front of us.
