Real Estate Development for Real Change
Explore triple bottom line investment opportunities
Investing in green nonprofit centers to get financial, social and environmental returns is a growing movement. Sound financial investments that also support positive social change and advance cutting edge sustainable design create a triple bottom line for our partners. Developing, operating, and promoting green, affordable shared office space for nonprofits is not only an innovative opportunity for social minded investors but also creates more stability and much needed infrastructure for the progressive community. You can work with Tides to initiate investment opportunities in your own community, or you can take part in investment opportunities for green nonprofit centers that have already been planned.
Build local workspace funder collaborations
By supporting nonprofit centers, you have an immediate platform to bring together local funders in your region. One investment can support multiple organizations and help strengthen a community, and collaborative funding further increases the impact of community investments.
Foundations creating shared spaces
There are a growing number of foundations using their own headquarters or investing in nonprofit building projects to promote healthy, vibrant communities. Nonprofit centers become strategic investments for foundations that reflect their mission and values. Foundations have turned office buildings into community assets by developing diverse spaces providing everything from quality workspace to community conference centers to incubators for social change.
