TD Bank Corporation, along with the TD Bank Foundation, and Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ) have been year-round Partners for over 10 years.
Initially engaging with SONJ in 2008, TD bank provided support to our Young Athletes program. The following year TD bank further solidified their commitment to the partnership and the advancement of the Special Olympics movement by developing a cause-related marketing campaign. Since its inception, this campaign has consistently generated more than $1M each year for the Special Olympics organizations in the 16 states from Maine to Florida where they do business including over $2.5M in New Jersey.
Each year during the campaign, Special Olympics athletes visit TD bank locations to engage with their staff and share their own experiences and athlete trading cards while spreading SONJ’s mission. The TD Bank Campaign has not only made a monetary impact on the Special Olympics organizations it supports but is an outstanding demonstration of a sustainable and integrated Year-Round partnership.
The TD Charitable Foundation also provides annual support to Special Olympics New Jersey. Currently, the foundation helps to foster environments of inclusion for all students and communities across New Jersey by supporting the Unified Champion Schools program.
A representative from TD Bank, Renee Altomonte currently serves as a member of our Board of Trustees.
