3. Tides Canada leads the way in socially responsible investing.
Giving to charity is only one part of supporting positive change. Harmonizing your values with how your dollars are invested creates even greater impact.
Your charitable dollars will be managed under our socially responsible investment (SRI) policies. Since our start-up in December 2000, we have engaged investment managers who invest in organizations whose policies and practices are as consistent as possible with our mission to build a more sustainable and just world.

4. You can recommend grants across Canada and internationally.
Tides Canada enables you to make grants anywhere in Canada, no matter where you live.
In partnership with Tides Foundation in the U.S., we pioneered international giving services that make it easy for Canadian and U.S. donors like you to recommend grants on either side of the border and around the world.
5. Your giving will be easier, cost-effective, and more enjoyable.
Giving should be easy, personally meaningful, professionally administered, and ultimately, effective. We can tailor a broad range of effective grant-making programs for you through our focus on donor advised funds.
