The key to our sustainability is our people and their impact. At Tamarack we are committed to supporting our diverse community of members and partners, to making their work easier, and, above all, more effective.
Our network of incredible and passionate changemakers has grown by more than 50% in the last five years.
The progress of our shared movement would not have been possible without changemakers like you, and its future rests on our commitment to continue building and learning together.
That’s why we have decided to embrace fundraising as a movement building tool. Together, we can strengthen our shared commitments to our communities and movements, policy and systems change, and large-scale impact.

The Fund provides scholarships that subsidize and/or provide free learning opportunities to support Black, Indigenous, and racialized changemakers, youth and emerging practitioners, community members living on no or low-incomes, and those from small and grassroots organizations to be leaders of community change work.
We want to give special thanks to the funding partners and contributors who breathe significant momentum into the movement and our collective work. Our growing learning community and organizational funding partners are catalytic supporters of the movement.
As a registered charity, all funds generated through paid learning engagements from our members and learners are reinvested back into our work to strengthen Tamarack’s publicly available supports and resources. In 2022, contributions from our learning community totaled nearly $1.8M to the community change movement.
