TD Makes Understanding Your Personal Finances A Little Less Scary

TD employees volunteer to help out across the country during November - Financial Literacy Month

TORONTO, Oct. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Halloween, All Hallow's Eve, may be a dark and spooky time for many people, but on the eve of Financial Literacy Month, this year Canadians have one less thing to be afraid of - understanding their personal finances.

To mark Financial Literacy Month, TD Bank Group and its employees will be making a difference in communities across the country by helping Canadians to improve their knowledge, skills and confidence when it comes to finances. TD employees will be lending their expertise to people of all ages to better understand topics such as budgeting, investing, banking, debt and borrowing.  TD volunteers will partner with organizations including ABC Life Literacy Canada's Money Matters and Junior Achievement Canada's Economics for Success to deliver these services to Canadians.

"For the past ten years, I have volunteered with kids in Grade 8 through the Junior Achievement Program. In our sessions, I find that they are very eager to learn - they want to be savvy about finances and prepare for their future," says Laura Murray, IT Specialist at TD Bank Group in Scarborough. "I emphasize the importance of education in reaching their future financial goals. Once you make it simple for them to understand how to balance their income with their expenses, they quickly see that it isn't just about buying the things you want when you want them - there is hard work and planning that needs to be there too."

TD also donated over $1.3 million to support these programs which help Canadians reach long term goals for the future and more importantly instil more confidence when it comes to talking about money and finances.

"TD believes that financial literacy is an important life skill for people young and old.  It's something that is invaluable for success, and that is why Education & Financial Literacy is one of the main priorities here at TD," says Scott Mullin, Vice President, Community Relations, TD Bank Group. "Our support is focused on helping youth through classroom programs and assisting at-risk, underserved individuals and their families. We are very proud of our TD employees who donate their time in their own communities, helping their neighbours and community members."

TD has also developed a number of online resources, tools and calculators, as well as products and services for our customers to help them make better financial decisions. These include: TD Helps, TD Get Saving, TD Student Life and TD Planning for your Future - Life Events.

TD Community Giving TD Bank Group invests in communities to make a positive impact where it does business and where our customers, clients and employees live and work. In 2012, TD Bank Group donated over $65 million to support community organizations in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. In Canada, we focus on Education and Financial Literacy, Creating Opportunities for Young People, and the Environment. For more information, visit www.td.com/corporateresponsibility.
