2017 Year in Review - Thanks to you, we’re ready to make a difference 2017 Year in Review - Thanks to you, we’re ready to make a difference

Thank you for your generous support

Thank you for your continued support

Your generous support has helped us green where you live. In 2017, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) has supported more than 600 local environmental projects across Canada. Many of those projects focus on local green spaces – places where we come together to relax, play and find common ground.

Through the TD Common Ground Project, we also invested in community green spaces to bring even more people together. In recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday, in 2017 we granted more than $3 million to over 280 community environment projects, from outdoor classrooms and park revitalizations, to citizen science projects and bioblitzes. With your support, we will continue to grow and care for our environment, by helping to make Canada a greener place.
