- We believe companies have the potential to improve lives and move the needle on critical issues while also helping to support the economy. We believe that companies should be active in helping to solve pressing social and environmental issues to build sustainable communities. At TFS, we are proud to help lead the way.
- TFS is leveraging its philanthropic partnerships to help young people increase their financial knowledge, equipping them for a more successful adulthood. The TFS Financial Empowerment Initiative is designed to equip youth with the tools and resources necessary to feel confident in their financial decision-making ability.
- In 2014, TFS introduced a Financial Empowerment initiative that includes a national partnership with the Girl Scouts of the United States of America to launch the Financial Empowerment initiative. This new $1.72 million nationwide campaign, “Driving My Financial Future” will reach 24,000 girls, providing a curriculum designed to enlighten, educate and empower. (VIDEO)
