January 22, 2014, 2014 – Norristown/Pennsylvania – The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $35,000 to the Norristown Area Education Foundation (NAEF) as part of the foundation’s commitment to giving back to the community.
NAEF supports a multitude of programs for the students of the Norristown Area School District. Some of the district-wide technology initiatives that these funds will be used to support include astronomy, digital design and robotics. Additionally, the Board of Directors of NAEF are in the process of expanding its EITC approved programs in the areas of music, theatre, art and an array of after school programs. The funds that TD has given in the past have already enabled NAEF to complete a Mac computer lab at Norristown Area High School for pre-engineering and graphic arts students and supported Robotics teams across the District.
“This partnership with TD Bank has enabled the foundation to offer so many more programs to enhance the educational experiences of all the children in the district,” said Laurie Burt Baltrus, NAEF’s Vice President of the Board of Directors. “In the near future we are hoping to use these funds to also expand our classroom libraries, our Science programs, and support a Career Internship Program.”
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 support to affordable housing, financial literacy and education, and environmental initiatives, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families.
