TD Ready Challenge

As students continue to navigate school closures due to COVID, research predicts that they will experience significant learning loss due to remote and virtual learning. To help support students most affected by these disruptions, TD Bank is providing grants to organizations across Canada and the U.S.  

Launched in 2018, the TD Ready Challenge is an annual North American initiative that provides grants to not-for-profit and charitable organizations addressing real-life issues impacting people in our communities by providing grants to both types of organizations. 

This year’s program is awarding a total of $10 million CAD to charitable organizations to help scale solutions to address predicted learning loss in math and reading, particularly among students from Indigenous and racialized communities, low-income households, those with disabilities as well as limited access to technology.  

Among the 15 organizations selected, British Columbia’s Victoria Native Friendship Centre Bruce Parisian Library Reading Hub will receive a $500,000 CAD grant.

This vital learning centre is set to become a reading hub for in-person and online cultural programming for urban Indigenous pre-school and K-12 school children. The Library Team, Elders and volunteers will read to children while Indigenous authors will be invited to speak to both schools and online book groups.
