Daniel Trust Foundation, an award-winning youth development nonprofit organization with offices in Bridgeport, Connecticut and New York City, is pleased to announce that TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® has awarded the Foundation a Community Sponsorship to support The 5th Annual Daniel Trust Awards scheduled for June 7, 2018. The Daniel Trust Awards serves as Daniel Trust Foundation’s annual awards dinner, where seniors graduating from the Foundation’s High School Mentoring Program become Scholars in the College Scholarship Program, and local high school teachers get the opportunity to be honored and recognized by the Scholars.
TD Bank has supported The Daniel Trust Awards since 2015 and many of the Bank’s employees have been supporting Daniel Trust Foundation’s work from the very beginning of the Foundation's founding. “Receiving this Community Sponsorship from TD Bank will make a big impact in the lives of the 46 new and returning college scholars and the 12 high school teachers who will be honored and recognized at this year’s Daniel Trust Awards,” said Daniel Trust, President and CEO of Daniel Trust Foundation. “Strong corporate partnerships like these do not happen without the advocacy and support of a leader at the company. I want to sincerely thank my friend Timothy Taylor, Vice President, Director of Operations for Southern New England at TD Bank, for the support he has given our students and teachers over the years.”
