YPI Canada: TD Bank Group Doubles its Funding 

The waitlist for a spot in an award-winning project for Canadian secondary schools will be shorter next year, thanks to a major donation of $500,000 from TD Bank Group which doubles their longstanding support of the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative Canada, and secures enrollment for 20,000 students across the country in 2017/18. Founded by the Toskan-Casale Foundation in Toronto in 2002, the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative is a secondary school project that uses participatory grant-making to connect thousands of students each year to social issues and charities in their communities.
