Create Positive Social Change
Philanthropy has a critically important role to play in shifting public policy and public discourse. Tides partners with funders to support 501(c)3 efforts to shift the landscape on health care, immigration reform, same sex marriage, election administration, and other critical issues. While supporting the ability of nonprofits to contribute to policy change, we ensure that our grantmaking complies with funder and regulatory restrictions regarding the direct funding of lobbying.
For funders able to contribute directly to 501(c)4 organizations, Tides has a partnership with The Advocacy Fund.
