TD Green Streets
TD Green Streets is the flagship program of Tree Canada, and the only nationally-based municipal forestry innovation program in Canada. Since its inception in 1994, almost 500 Canadian municipalities have received Green Streets funding.
TD Green Streets encourages and supports the adoption of leading-edge practices in municipal forestry and is proudly sponsored by the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
Since 1990, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation has provided nearly $60 million in funding to over 20,000 community-based environmental projects. Funding recommendations are made by one of over 80 volunteer Advisory Boards across the country, ensuring that decision-making is local, relevant and impactful.
Because TD covers the management and administrative costs of running the Foundation, 100% of every donated dollar supports local environmental projects in the communities in which the donation was made.
