Tides partners with individuals, groups, and funders to implement programs that accelerate positive social change. We define positive social change in terms of programs and activities that create and promote a world of shared prosperity and social justice, founded on equality and human rights, quality education, a sustainable environment, and healthy individuals and communities. While there are many avenues to affect positive social change, Tides social ventures work mainly in civic engagement, community development, economic opportunity, education and training, environmental sustainability, health services/healthcare reform, housing and homelessness, human rights, human and social services, international development, social justice, sustainable food and agriculture, violence prevention, and youth development and organizing.
