Self-Description: The Tides Center strengthens the roots of the social change movement by partnering quality management services with creative programmatic endeavors. As a Tides Center project, you acquire and maintain the organizational infrastructure that frees you to conduct your work in an effective, prudent, and results-oriented way. Our skilled office staff provide core services such as financial and personnel administration, while you focus on your program, planning, fundraising, and outreach strategies. You can become a project as an interim step before creating your own organization or, like many of our projects, enjoy the efficiencies and cost savings of our support for an extended period of time. Currently, the Tides Center supports over 300 projects in forty states and twelve countries.
