As you plan your year-end giving, we hope you will consider a gift to Tides Canada to advance our work in tackling tough social and environmental issues.

You can help by making a gift to one of the over 50 social change projects on our shared platform, donating to a donor advised fund, or making an unrestricted gift, which will go to the area of greatest need. Together, we can protect what makes us proud to be Canadiana healthy environment, thriving and caring communities, and a sustainable future for generations to come.

Please mark your calendars with these important year-end giving dates.

Note: Our offices in Vancouver, Toronto, and Yellowknife will be closed from December 24, 2018 to January 1, 2019.
