Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Canada charitable and nonprofit organizations for projects that address inequities that have been worsened by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Preference will be given to organizations with a wider geographic reach and with scalable programs. Applications must also address one or more of the four Funding Source focus areas.

The 2020 TD Ready Challenge seeks to provide financial support to organizations that have designed innovative, scalable and/or replicable solutions to help address the pandemic-caused issues faced by communities that are experiencing disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 across North America. Solutions must address at least one (but can address more) of the four interconnected drivers of change of the TD Ready Commitment (Financial Security, Vibrant Planet, Connected Communities and Better Health).
