APRIL 21, 2023 – Small Change Fund is excited to welcome Lara Ellis to our Board. Lara has an extensive background in the Canadian nature and nonprofit sector and is currently a consultant for national and regional non-governmental organizations.
Lara was formerly Senior Vice-President of Policy and Partnerships at ALUS Canada and has also worked at the Ivey Foundation, Nature Canada and CPAWS-Wildlands League. She is a member of the Women for Nature network and in 2017 was recognized with a Clean 50 award for her work in developing innovative environmental solutions.
“I’m very happy to be part of this vibrant and successful organization,” says Lara. “Small Change Fund is extremely effective in providing groups with resources and jumpstarting campaigns. This is what it takes to address environmental problems both big and small.”
Lara lives in Toronto with her family – including a waterdog who is enthusiastic about exploring all of nature, especially muddy habitats with squirrels and rabbits!
