Community involvement is at the core of TAL Group’s corporate responsibility strategy. Our business practices are guided by one shared commitment: to do what is right for our clients, our people, our community and the environment. We continue to focus our efforts on helping the surrounding communities that have supported us through the years. Giving back is a unique part of our DNA and we believe in donating more than just money. We believe that fulfilling this responsibility in a sustainable manner demands high ethical standards and a culture that values honesty, integrity and transparency in all that we do.
While Ladies Learning Code is TAL Group's officially designated charity, our team actively gives back to a number of charitable organizations year-round. We regularly participate in Dixon Hall's Meals on Wheels program, The Cure Foundation's Denim Day and the Light the Night Walk to Fight Leukemia. Please find a few of the charities we support below, and consider supporting the work we do with a donation.

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), affiliated with the University of Toronto, is Canada's most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre dedicated to improving children's health in the country. As innovators in child health, SickKids improves the health of children by integrating care, research and teaching. With a staff that includes professionals from all disciplines of health care and research, SickKids provides the best in complex and specialized care by creating scientific and clinical advancements, sharing knowledge and expertise and championing the development of an accessible, comprehensive and sustainable child health system.
Dixon Hall was established in 1929 and began distributing aid in December of that year. As an organization, it focuses on tackling social issues and engaging in community development. Dixon Hall offers a breadth of programs and supports, particularly in the area of hostels and housing. Over the years, its mission has remained the same: to serve those with the greatest need, to give hope, dreams and possibilities to those who would otherwise have none. This guiding principle can be seen in everything Dixon Hall does, from engaging partnerships to innovative and community generated programs.
The CURE Foundation is a vehicle powered by the energy of giving. It provides Canadians from all walks of life the opportunity to contribute to the fight against breast cancer through participation in National Denim Day. This day was chosen as the CURE Foundation's fundraising event because jeans are universal attire, worn by Canadians regardless of their social economic status. The donations received from hundreds of thousands of Canadians are what fuel the Foundation and enable it to move forward and fulfill its mission—to provide the financial support necessary to create resources that will improve the outcome for those affected by breast cancer.
Each year, in communities across Canada, teams or families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada's (LLSC's) Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers. During these events, family and friends gather in select sites across Canada to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause; a white lantern for blood cancer survivors, a red one to walk as a supporter and a gold one in memory of a loved one.
