“The Community Loan Fund is very grateful for this support from the TD Charitable Foundation. We appreciate their continued focus on community reinvestment and improving access to training and resources that will create real change in our communities,” says Linda MacFarlane, Executive Director for the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region.
“We’re so fortunate to have a partner like the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region that shares TD’s value of supporting small businesses and entrepreneurism, as well as helping people live their lives with greater financial confidence. The support from the TD Charitable Foundation will help communities and minority-owned small businesses thrive by equipping the owners with the knowledge and financing they need to grow,” said James Gaspo, TD Bank Regional Vice President for Upstate N.Y.
