An easy way to contribute to AGTS:
How does the TD Bank Affinity Program work?
TD Bank will make an annual contribution to AGTS if 50 accounts are linked to the AGTS’ Affinity Program. The amount of TD Bank’s contribution is based on the average annual balance in the account of the customers who join the Affinity Program. Joining the program does NOT alter the terms or condition of your TD Bank accounts, and none of your funds or personal information will be given to AGTS.
Do you have an individual or business account at TD Bank?
If you do, please tell TD Bank you want to join AGTS Foundation’s Affinity Program (#AF320). Raising funds for AGTS does not get any easier than this!
By joining the Affinity Program, AGTS will receive an annual contribution from TD Bank simply because you bank there!
