Tides is a leader in corporate philanthropic strategy and management. From Pledge 1% – the movement in corporate philanthropy that encourages companies to contribute 1% of their product, employee time and equity to charitable causes – to our work with groundbreaking companies like Patagonia, Google and Twilio, we partner with a range of companies to codify, strengthen, and fulfill their commitment to positive social change.
Strategic Philanthropic Advising
Effective, authentic corporate philanthropy requires a thoughtful strategy that aligns with your company's values. Tides is the perfect partner for companies that need to define their philanthropic strategy or corporate social impact approach from scratch; we'll work hand-in-hand with you to make sure that your employees, customers, and stakeholders are engaged and inspired by the path forward. Our expertise across issue areas also allows us to help you identify the best recipients for charitable resources. If you simply need a refresh or realignment, we can help you make those adjustments as well.
As the world becomes more connected, corporate giving programs often turn their focus to supporting mission-aligned organizations globally. Tides has worked as an international grantmaker to over 150 countries, giving us the experience to help assure that grants are appropriate and effective within the laws, cultures, and traditions of your desired country of impact. Our services for global grants include, but are not limited to: navigation of U.S.-based and international regulations, opportunities for both individual and collaborative giving, translation services, and rigorous attention to detail within all of our funding options.
