TD Bank Proudly Supports The LGBT Community, Participates In Pride Events

CHERRY HILL, N.J. and PORTLAND, Maine, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank®, will proudly participate in 14 Pride events across its Maine to Florida footprint in continued support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

At TD Bank, pride is valued and acknowledged every day. To continue the celebration across borders with its Canadian parent, TD is introducing the Win a Trip to WorldPride Sweepstakes, where entrants are eligible to win a first-class trip to Toronto for WorldPride 2014, which will include four nights at a 5+ star hotel on the parade route, VIP access to festival events, performances and parties and a $1,000 TD Bank Visa gift card. The contest runs now through July 31, 2013. To enter, text "pride" to 77982 or visit

"TD Bank is invested in its commitment to diversity and inclusion and we value the events and initiatives that matter to our employees and customers who we serve. We are not just a sponsor of Pride, but rather a full community partner and supporter of the LGBTA community," said Robert Pompey, Head of Commercial Management Administration at TD Bank and Co-Chair of the bank's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Allies Subcommittee.

TD Bank employee volunteers will participate in the Pride events by marching in the parade, engaging the crowds and distributing giveaways.

Upcoming TD Bank sponsored Pride events include:

  • Rhode Island Pride ( Providence), June 15, 2013
  • Southern Maine Pride ( Portland), June 15, 2013
  • New York City Heritage of Pride, June 30, 2013
  • Charleston Pride, August 4, 2013
  • Provincetown Carnival (Mass.), August 22, 2013
  • Worcester Pride, September 7, 2013
  • Burlington (VT) Pride Parade & Festival, September 15, 2013
  • LGBT Coalition of Western MA, September 21, 2013

The series of Pride festivals is just one part of TD Bank's unwavering commitment to equality and creating a truly inclusive workplace. In 2013, TD Bank became one of the first banks in the nation to offset the tax burden its LGBT employees incur to pay for domestic-partner benefits. The bank also extended the national conversation on the issue of bullying and teen suicide within the LGBT community by creating the "Make it Better" video, which highlights TD employees and a message of support from TD's President and CEO, Ed Clark. In fact, TD Bank's dedication to inclusion was recently recognized by DiversityInc when named one of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity in 2013. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation also distinguished TD Bank as one of "The Best Places to work for LGBT Equality."
