TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund

About the Fund
The TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund (the ‘Fund’), managed by Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), is the first of its kind in Canada. The Fund provides grants to charitable or other non-profit organizations that serve low income and otherwise economically disadvantaged persons and groups in Canada to support and promote financial literacy.
The recent economic crisis has highlighted the need for people to be financially literate. Financial literacy programs provide money management tools and information on how and where to receive assistance as well as instill confidence in peoples’ ability to manage their finances.
Fund Objective
The TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund aims to increase accessibility to financial literacy education for people living in Canada who may normally be excluded from mainstream financial organizations, enabling them to develop skills, knowledge and confidence in financial issues.
The Fund will gather and disseminate the learnings that emerge from the best practices of projects supported through the Fund and will evaluate and communicate the impact of funded projects.
