The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated $8,400 to Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) in support of its nationally recognized Advantage Program at SNHU’s Salem Center as part of the bank’s commitment to giving back to the community.

SNHU’s Advantage Program enables students to earn an associate degree in liberal arts in just two years in a unique program, which offers small class sizes, 12-week terms, morning classes held 8 am to noon four days a week, tutoring and more at a substantial discount off full-time undergraduate day school tuition. Students have the option of continuing their education, earning a bachelor’s degree, at Southern New Hampshire University’s main campus in Manchester, N.H., at one of the university’s five regional centers or online. The funds from the TD Charitable Foundation will enable the Salem Center to create a new academic support center specifically for the Advantage Program.

The grant will allow SNHU’s Salem Center to provide additional support to foster success in exam and research paper preparation as well as a quiet space for students to study, take tests and access technology.  According to Laura Corddry, director of the SNHU Advantage Program, the center will also have resources such as textbooks, computers and supplies, available for students.

“Many of our students come to our Advantage Program needing additional supports with their academics,” said Corddry. “This grant will enable us to significantly build on the tools and resources currently available to allow our students to fully succeed.”

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.
