Founders

We are excited to welcome students to our Scholarship Program! There are now over 50 students attending university through a Tallman Foundation Scholarship.

In addition to the schools that we have supported in the past, we added River East, Kildonan East, Transcona, Murdoch Mackay and Dakota Collegiate this year! There are now students from 12 Winnipeg High Schools included in our program.

A large part of our foundation's scholarship program includes learning, new opportunities, and giving back. In the past few years, we have attended Winnipeg Goldeyes & Jets games, we have met with Gail Asper, gone behind the scenes at the Manitoba Legislature with Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross, and been behind and in front of the curtain at Rainbow Stage. We have served Thanksgiving Dinners and Christmas Breakfast at Elementary schools and walked about 40,000 steps in the park at our annual 10,000 Steps, a Walk in the Park. Our students have attended numerous dinners including our own night; Encounter; an evening with Peter Mansbridge. We have so much planned for the years ahead!

This year we celebrated the accomplishments of our first two students; Kayla and Adriel, as they complete their first degrees. We were proud to present them with their "Stand Tall" rings, and to witness the signing of the Tallman Foundation pledge!  While they are now Alumni with the Tallman Foundation, that will always be part of the fabric of our programs.

On behalf of our family, The Tallman Foundation Team, and our Students, we would like to extend a warm thank you to all of our supporters, sponsors and volunteers. It is only because of you that we have been able to start this special group of students on the road to their first post-secondary degree.

Sincerely,

Bob and Cathy Tallman
