TD Charitable Foundation Supports Family Promise and Rebuilding Together with Housing for Everyone grant
Press release from Family Promise of Gainesville
The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $125,000 to Family Promise of Gainesville and Rebuilding Together North Central Florida as part of the foundation’s Housing for Everyone grant competition. A total of $3.75 million was provided to 30 nonprofits to improve access to safe, clean, and affordable housing in communities from Maine to Florida.
Family Promise of Gainesville is a shelter and housing self-sufficiency program for families who have experienced homelessness. Rebuilding Together North Central Florida is a home repair program for homeowners with lower income, to stabilize families. The funds from the TD Charitable Foundation will be used for these two organizations to create an innovative new partnership, to purchase, renovate and maintain affordable rental housing units for families who have experienced homelessness. This partnership will allow Family Promise to keep these units affordable for many generations.
“The Housing for Everyone grants bring the bank’s social impact platform, the TD Ready Commitment, to life by helping to create safe, affordable residences for those in greatest need,” said Paige Carlson-Heim, Director of the TD Charitable Foundation and Office of Charitable and Community Giving. “We recognize that having a safe, affordable place to live is essential to achieving financial security. “
“TD Bank is helping Gainesville create new affordable housing units for the most vulnerable families in our community. Family Promise is excited to begin our partnership with Rebuilding Together to repair homes, revitalize communities, and rebuild lives,” said Jayne Moraski, Executive Director of Family Promise of Gainesville.
The Housing for Everyone grant competition supports TD’s longstanding commitment to community enrichment through TD’s social impact platform, the TD Ready Commitment. The TD Ready Commitment actively promotes inclusivity, economic vitality, environmental wellbeing, and health, enabling people of all backgrounds to succeed in a rapidly changing world. As part of the TD Ready Commitment, TD targets US $750 million in total by 2030 towards community giving in four critical areas: Financial Security, a more Vibrant Planet, Connected Communities and Better Health. Through this platform, TD aspires to create a more inclusive tomorrow — helping people of all backgrounds feel more confident, not just about their finances, but about their ability to achieve their goals.
