Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida is being recognized with a $3,500 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, for the council’s Leadership Experience-Starting Today project, which engages girls in discovering self, connecting with others and taking action to make the world a better place.
“We are honored to be recognized by the TD Charitable Foundation for our continuous efforts of encouraging girls and providing skills to become leaders,” said Maria Tejera, CEO of Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida.
The program focuses on the following three keys to leadership:
Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
Connect: Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.
Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place.
TD Bank, through the TD Charitable Foundation, carries a legacy of supporting not-for-profit institutions and their important work throughout the region. Since its inception in 2002, the foundation has contributed more than $63 million in grant funding to not-for-profit organizations in the communities where they work, live and do business.
“For us, corporate responsibility is more than just a phrase, it’s an integral part of our commitment to service, a commitment that extends well beyond the doors of our stores and offices,” said Tom te Riele, TD Bank market president for South Florida.
“We believe the opportunity to enrich our communities is both a privilege and a responsibility and we are proud to support the Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida in helping to provide opportunities for girls to become leaders,” he added.
