Tides manages all incoming and outgoing funds for each social venture and processes all financial transactions on behalf of our social ventures. Tides provides a financial orientation that covers budgeting, coding expenses, monitoring expenses, the Tides chart of accounts, and reading and utilizing the monthly financial statements prepared by Tides. Invoices are paid via check or ACH on a weekly basis and expedited payments are available for an extra charge. Social ventures are able to access their funds via purchase cards, direct invoicing, and petty cash accounts. Social ventures are responsible for coding transactions, submitting original receipts, honoring our timelines, and monitoring their own cash flow.
