     “We were finding, as a funder, that we were having to turn down a lot of applicants. Our framework was not clear enough. I took the [Communities Ending Poverty's] Getting to Impact series and was able to adjust it. Through the program I was able to connect with other United Ways [which] gave me the confidence I needed to make that change. The following funding year, our framework was much clearer, and we didn’t get as many applications that weren’t the right fit.”

    "The ripples of Tamarack’s work extend far and wide, and I am but one testament to the many lives and careers Tamarack has helped shape.  For me, personally, Tamarack has always been there [helping me to] manage complex multi-program portfolios centred around population health and wellness Even in times of much-needed pause and reflection, I find myself turning to Tamarack for support."

    "Being a member of this national body offers added credibility to the work we do and enables us to see the broader picture of poverty reduction across the country. Communities of Practice allow us to learn from others and thoughtfully apply new strategies to our work.”
