Self-Description: Since 1976, the Tides Foundation has worked with donors to strengthen community-based organizations and the progressive movement through innovative grantmaking. We define "progressive" as creating a positive impact on people's lives in ways that honor and promote human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment. We have awarded more than 300 million dollars to nonprofits working for social change in this country and abroad. Most grants are made on the recommendation of one of our individual, family, or institutional donors who are interested in specific strategies furthering social change and environmental sustainability.
Program: Tides Foundation offers a wide range of services, including: Donor Advised Funds that integrate financial advantages and convenience with social responsibility; flexibly designed grantmaking programs, personalized to fit your needs; an expert, dedicated staff and more than twenty five years of grantmaking expertise in the social change movement; and opportunities for learning and building community through gatherings, other activities, and materials targeted to your interests.
For Our Grantseekers: Tides Foundation manages more than 250 Donor Advised Funds, each of which represents a unique partnership with our donors. If you are part of a nonprofit organization engaged in promoting social change, we encourage you to review our Guidelines for Grantseekers, which will aid you in evaluating whether and how to submit a funding request to Tides.

Actual: A pass-through money funnel for other people's money to pay for left-wing projects with anonymity for donors and management fees for Tides Foundation. The more than 250 Tides Donor Advised Fund projects use the IRS tax exemption of Tides Foundation, and may keep their donors, income, assets and expenditures hidden from public inspection.
