"In recognition of the upcoming celebration of National Small Business Week, TD Bank employees will embark on a month-long mission to let small businesses know that we're here to lend when they're ready to borrow," said Fred Graziano, Head of Regional Commercial Banking, Government Banking and Small Business, TD Bank. "We understand the important role small businesses have in adding new jobs and bolstering economic development in our communities, and we're committed to providing them with the capital they need to be successful."
Providing convenient banking products and legendary customer service is what distinguishes TD Bank as a leading small business bank. Along with offering both conventional financing and loans backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), a dedicated, small business banker advises each customer on a wide array of banking products and services that helps make business banking easier, more efficient and hassle-free.
TD Bank continues to build its small business franchise. Ahead of this month's small business outreach campaign, the bank announced in February its most recent investments to support small business, including:
- A three-year pledge totaling $500,000 to support ACCION USA's microlending programs from Maine to Florida.
- The launch of TD Business Checking, a new checking account suite, which enables small business owners to choose an account that's the right fit for their business.
- The creation of "Small Business Chats with Cassandra Cash," two informative YouTube videos about banking convenience and the benefits of a personalized, business banking relationship.
