Sierra Health Foundation invests in improving health and quality of life for residents in Northern California.  Although the Foundation generally invests outside its own walls to serve its mission, when the Foundation’s leadership saw the investment opportunity to repurpose one of their own buildings into an innovative and green nonprofit space, they jumped at the opportunity to better and more fully align their resources with their mission.   

To accomplish this, the Sierra Health Foundation’s CEO turned to Tides, a leader in nonprofit centers, to create a strategy and floor design to best transform the space so it would not only be desirable to nonprofit tenants, but also foster shared knowledge and experience as well as innovative and creative approaches to serving clients.  Tides consultants conducted a needs assessment process and provided consulting services on creating a green nonprofit center that saved the foundation valuable time and money.

With Tides expertise, the foundation’s new Nonprofit Innovation Center opened quickly.  In just under a year, 10 semi-custom suites, a shared workroom and four shared meeting rooms were built out to house nonprofits which share technology, office supplies and a front office receptionist.  Today, the Nonprofit Innovation Center is a model facility, promoting cross-agency learning, engagement and resource sharing at an affordable price, and allowing its 18 tenant organizations to focus on their shared work toward a more healthy Northern California.
