Dominique Gross

A native Philadelphian, Goss sees her role as TD Bank’s charitable foundation relationships manager as “strategically connecting our resources to address social issues that are relevant to our local communities,” she wrote in an email.

Goss remembers becoming aware of urban centers’ social ills her freshman year at Howard University in D.C. It seemed unfair to her that poorer communities should have fewer resources, like grocery stores. She soon connected those inequities to the ones she saw back home.
