TD Bank Welcomes Applications for 2021 TD Ready Challenge

TD Bank is welcoming applications for its annual North American initiative, the TD Ready Challenge, which has C$10 million ($7.9 million) in grants available to organizations developing innovative, impactful, and measurable solutions for a changing world.

According to TD Bank, the pandemic has disrupted elementary and high school education across North America. The transition to alternative ways of teaching has created challenges for both students and teachers due to uneven implementation and unequal access to technology. To remedy this, the challenge invites applications focused on addressing predicted learning loss in math and reading for disproportionately impacted students in grades K-12 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There is a preference for programs that support disproportionately impacted students experiencing learning loss as a result of COVID-19 due to factors such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geographic location; that have wide demographic or geographical reach in areas where TD operates (all of Canada and specific states in the U.S. (map and listing of eligible US states found here); and that will use the grant to scale and/or replicate solutions to additional communities or populations (or pilot projects with material evidence of viable success and scalability).

Organizations may apply for grants ranging from C$375,000 up to C$1 million for Canadian organizations or $325,000 to $1 million for U.S. organizations.

To be eligible, organizations must be Canadian registered or incorporated charities and nonprofits or U.S. charitable, nonprofit organizations as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the IRS tax code.

Deadline: August 26, 2021
