Aligning investments and philanthropy

Tides Canada’s ImpactDAF is the first customizable donor advised fund in Canada to be 100% invested for impact.

An ImpactDAF at Tides Canada offers a new way to maximize philanthropy for social and environmental good by bringing charitable giving and impact investing together in a single fund.

Impact investing nearly doubled between 2016-2017, indicating a sea change of people wanting to do more with their money by integrating economic, social, and environmental returns. However, blending philanthropic and investment tools in service to an aligned mission is still a challenge. Tides Canada’s ImpactDAF offers a unique solution where investments and grants have a shared purpose.

The ImpactDAF is designed for foundations, families, and individuals opening a fund with a minimum $1M balance. Funds are invested with a customized strategy that ensures individual mission and values fit, and provides impact measurement using a methodology aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
