The Tides Foundation was founded in 1976 by Drummond Pike to work with “community-based nonprofit organizations and the progressive movement through innovative grantmaking.” It is a government sector lobbying organization, using grants from public and private sources to fund progressive charities and organizations.[1]


Tides Foundation works with donors to increase and organize resources to incite "social change." It runs grant programs and promotes education.


Its self-identified progressive philanthropy provides a forum for grantmaking to non-profits and offers services to donors "committed to fairness, equality, and the sustainability of this world," its website says.

It is a public charity that structures individual philanthropies, linking them to a national and international network of like progressive charities and activist organizations.[1]

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan is a source for the Tides Foundation.[2]
