About TCF Community Relations
TCF supports the banking needs of its communities in numerous and diverse ways. We provide financial solutions to a broad range of customers, individuals, families and small to medium-size businesses. We also work to ensure that credit is available to everyone, especially those in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods.
The TCF Foundation, the philanthropic arm of TCF National Bank, extends charitable contributions to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations in education, human services, community development, and the arts. The Foundation allocates grants to organizations located within the communities in which we have TCF offices, and to organizations engaged in nonprofit activities designed to improve the economic and social well-being of our communities. Our focus is to fund those organizations actively supported by current TCF employees though volunteerism or service on boards and committees.
