Where Can You Go To Change The World? Nonprofit Centers
Tides' expertise in nonprofit centers was formed in response to the ongoing difficulties that social change organizations and nonprofits have in finding quality, affordable work and program space. Workspace is often the second largest budget item after salaries. Lack of affordable space has forced dislocation on many nonprofits, both in times of economic boom – due to rising commercial rents – and in times of government and funding cutbacks.
Nonprofit centers are an effective social investment with the ability to provide tenant organizations with shared services and meeting spaces, as well as opportunities for collaboration and cost-sharing to support their missions. These centers also provide hubs for community organizing and economic development. Stable costs and increased visibility create employment opportunities for local residents and support local businesses. To date, hundreds of these centers have been created across the country-regionally and internationally.
