A $12,500 gift from TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, will support students at Greenville Technical College (GTC). The gift will allow the college’s Financial Education Center to celebrate Financial Literacy Week, March 19-23, 2018, with an entire week of activities and events aimed at improving students’ financial knowledge and health. Experts from TD Bank will be joining the college in educating students and the college community on how to make the best financial decisions. The focus will include budgeting, spending, credit scores, debt management, and online security.

In addition, the gift will assist the college in obtaining supplies for community days of service. These include Martin Luther King Day and 9/11 Remembrance Day, when volunteers come together to complete projects that benefit local agencies. These efforts increase awareness of community problems and social issues while developing leadership and interpersonal skills.

“A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of our philosophy at TD Bank,” said Cal Hurst, Regional Vice President.  “We are pleased to support the worthwhile programs at Greenville Tech that are so beneficial to their hardworking students.”

“We are grateful to TD for funding initiatives that benefit our students while they are on campus and long after they graduate,” said Ann Wright, vice president for advancement with the Greenville Tech Foundation. “Financial Literacy Week will give our students the knowledge needed to avoid financial pitfalls that could keep them from graduating and succeeding. Our days of service promote social responsibility through volunteerism. TD Bank is joining with us to make these important efforts possible.”
