LISC would like to thank the TD Charitable Foundation for its most recent grant to advance LISC’s comprehensive community development strategies in Boston, Connecticut, Hartford, Jacksonville, New York City, Newark, Philadelphia, Rhode Island, and Washington, D.C. In each site, we’re focusing on affordable housing production and preservation, helping to make quality, affordable housing available to all residents—from seniors to veterans to the formerly homeless.
With TD Charitable Foundation resources, we deliver technical assistance to help partners navigate the densely regulated compliance environment of federally supported properties, while also conducting organizational assessments to build their internal capacity to move affordable housing projects forward. Further, we help partners fill financing gaps at every stage of a project’s life cycle.
“Our partnership with LISC is demonstrative of the foundation’s mission to increase access to affordable housing in the communities we live and work,” said Michael Carbone, President, TD Charitable Foundation. “Through such strategic partnerships, we’re working to sustain long-term social and economic growth.”
TD Charitable Foundation has been an important partner of LISC for over twenty years, providing grants, loans, and equity investments to communities as well as volunteer service on our Local Advisory Committees. Today, four TD Bank representatives serve on these committees, providing leadership and expertise to our local programs.
TD Bank’s community investments are focused on addressing the following key priorities to create greater impact: education and financial literacy; the environment; creating opportunities for young people; and affordable housing.
