- ENVISION making a lasting impact, but feel overwhelmed by the thousands of charities out there?

The Solution: A donor advised fund at Tides Canada
With a donor advised fund at Tides Canada, your dream for a better world can become reality. Establishing a fund is an easy and cost-effective way for you or your family to make a difference. It’s like having your own foundation – without the expense and hassle of managing an entire organization.
Simplify and amplify the impact of your giving
- You make a one-time or ongoing contribution to Tides Canada, which is immediately tax deductible at the time of your gift.
- You then recommend grants to be made from your donor advised fund.
- Or, you can work with a Tides Canada client specialist to determine where your gift can have the greatest impact.
Tides Canada handles the paperwork and provides due diligence, which enables you to focus on your vision for making change. We take care of your grant-making administration, fund management, and reporting.
Your donor advised fund can be annual, long-term, or endowed as a legacy. It can be publicly recognized or anonymous.
Contributions to your fund can take many forms, including cash, publicly traded securities, real estate, life insurance, and gifts from your estate.
Pool your gifts with others
We can also help you pool gifts with others to increase the power of your giving. You can explore ways to have friends, family, or co-workers help grow your fund to celebrate an occasion, support a favourite cause, or commemorate a loved one.
We facilitate tax-efficient cross-border philanthropy and donations to causes in all the places you care about, in partnership with Tides Foundation in the U.S.
Our international giving services and counsel can be used for one-time grant recommendations and ongoing gifts to U.S. or international charities.
