Since 1976, we've been working with people like you to make the world a better place.
The full range of philanthropic services at Tides can help amplify and simplify your giving, letting you concentrate on the issues and values that are important. Whether you are looking for a straightforward grantmaking vehicle like a donor advised fund, or are interested in launching a new nonprofit project, Tides can help transform your vision and ideas into positive social change.
Tides take the “heavy lifting” out of grantmaking by offering expert advice and professional services. We manage over $280 million in assets, and have granted more than $1.3 billion since 1976. Tides has the track record, the capacity, and most importantly, the shared values to be the right home for you and your philanthropy.
