In 2017, we are creating a dedicated fund to ensure that the people you see at the front of the room at Springtide events are as representative as possible of our communities.
Underrepresented voices such as those of women of colour, people living with disabilities, those in poverty, and newcomers to Canada, for example, face additional barriers to participating in community activities. Those who do participate are often overextended and underpaid. Making it out to events can be more of a privilege than we realize.
This fund will ensure that we can offer a modest honorarium for speakers that would otherwise not be able to participate.
A charitable tax receipt will be issued for any donations over $25.
