Tambour is a tactical amplification collective formalized as a non-profit solidarity coop. Our goal is to help amplify the reach, impact and health of social, cultural and environmental projects everywhere in the world. Yup, that's a lot of words. And yes we unfortunately are consultants 🤷🏽♀️🤷🏻♂️.
Rumor has it that our name is in fact an acronym that stands for : Troup for the Acceleration of Monetary Benefits for Organisations Undertaking Revolution. But Tambour mostly means drum in french and we hope to help projects be heard !
Research and benchmarking
Strategic and tactical plans
Copy for business plans, grant, loans and donations requests
Support for partnership outreach and value proposal validation
Through our work and with the insights from our clients and support members, we identify recurring problems within the ecosystems of social change and we try to work with the communities to bridge the gaps.
Us - a mental health referral service and research project for social change makers
Spark Fund - a community driven radical social innovation R&D fund
Sources - a free, open and collaborative grant opportunities database
Fondation - a democratic people-driven foundation
Formats - a project on media coverage of social change projects
These are all partnership initiatives which means that :
We work on setting up the projects with and for other groups
Try to work with a maximum of groups on any given topic we address
Aim to amplify what already exists and not re-create existing value propositions
Use part of the value we generate with our consulting services (5%) to fund our catalyst work and use our knowledge on funding to help fund the project (aka : we eat our own dog food)
We're far from being good at everything and we have a good International network of specialized groups for other dimensions of a project :
Animation and co-design
IT and digital tools
Tambour works for the tactical clarity, funding and social impact of any social, cultural and environmental project using it's services. It also strives to bonify the social impact infrastructure.
We do all of that to help :
Amplify the success and the reach of projects
Better meet the needs of humans
Help projects to reach their goals of social and cultural transformation
Increase the health and the wellbeing of social change makers
We think that through this work we participate in creating a better world where humans will live in balance with the planet through a more equal society.
