In 2002, Maytree co-founded the Tamarack Institute in partnership with Paul Born as President. Maytree’s relationship with Tamarack is part of its continuing efforts to reduce poverty through community engagement.
Tamarack tests ideas about community building, poverty reduction, collaboration and engagement to generate knowledge based on what works best in practice. It develops and supports collaborative strategies that engage citizens and institutions to solve major community challenges, and to learn from and share these experiences. The Institute sponsors projects and provides learning resources, training, coaching and strategic consulting that enable people to collaborate and learn with and from each other. Vibrant Communities, in collaboration with the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and the Caledon Institute of Social Policy, is Tamarack’s signature work.
