Maytree works to advance systemic solutions to poverty through a human rights approach. We support leaders, organizations and civic communities by developing and sharing knowledge, strengthening learning and leading, and mobilizing action to further economic and social rights. As a founding partner of The Urban Project, Maytree is committed to convening leaders from all orders of government, civil society, academia and business to co-create solutions to pressing urban challenges. Previously, we’ve also helped launch the Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance and Tamarack, an organization for community engagement. We invest in efforts to strengthen our cities because we believe that if we can build a city that works for people with low incomes, for immigrants and refugees, for those living with disabilities, and for the young and the old, it will work for all of us.
