The power to change the world lies in the ability of people to come together, share ideas, and work to make their visions real.
Too often activists and community organizations do not have the workspace or support services they need to move forward their mission, grow their community, or support a larger movement. Volatile real estate markets and limited budgets make it difficult for nonprofits to maintain affordable workspace and retain professional staff. In the changing economic reality, ensuring our nonprofit sector has quality, efficient operations is urgent.
Across North America and around the globe, thousands of community, philanthropic, government and private sector leaders are investing in nonprofit shared services and building projects to promote healthy, vibrant communities. Through our creation, operation, and promotion of sustainable workspace and administrative services for nonprofits, Tides has taken the lead in this burgeoning movement. We partner with institutions and individuals like you to create long-term solutions to the nonprofit space and infrastructure crisis.
We are committed to creating quality, stable workspace, shared services and programmatic collaborations for social change nonprofits. We support nonprofit centers and shared service organizations through peer education, consulting and advisory services to nonprofit practitioners and their philanthropic, government, and business partners.
