The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank®, recently gave a grant totaling $20,000 to the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston. The grant is part of the Foundation's commitment to give back to the local community and will help fund the South Carolina Aquarium Structured School Program.

The grant supports the Structured School Program, which the Aquarium provides to teachers and students of South Carolina free of charge. The interactive, hands-on programs are based on statewide K-12 curriculum standards and focus on South Carolina's science concepts including habitats, animal adaptations, watersheds, regions of the state, and conservation. The funding will make it possible for the Aquarium to provide free admission and a private classroom experience to students from schools across the state, the majority of which are Title I schools where students would not typically be afforded experience-based learning opportunities.

"Schoolchildren from around the state will have the opportunity to gain a powerful understanding of the natural world in our informal classroom setting," said Kevin Mills, Aquarium President and CEO. "We're grateful for TD Charitable Foundation's support of this program, supplementing STEM education initiatives that align with state standards."

A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank® and the TD Charitable Foundation provide financial and other support to affordable housing initiatives, financial literacy and education and the environment, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families.
