DISH just celebrated its fourth anniversary and we simply couldn't have done it without Tides. Tides Center provides an impressive array of services and its staff is fantastic. I've worked in the nonprofit sector for more than 25 years and every nonprofit I've served has struggled most with the administrative side of things. We are proud of our mission fit with Tides and grateful for Tides’ help, leadership, and friendship.

The Great!

Partnering with Tides has allowed DISH to focus on the demanding task of ending homelessness while Tides Center helps ensure prudent and user-friendly systems for finance, human resources, risk management, and so much more.

I think Tides is the solution to many of the challenges nonprofits face. I encourage others to partner with Tides Center. If you want to learn more about DISH, please check out www.dishsf.org.

I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to the fantastic people at Tides. As a project we are grateful every day for the many ways you support our work so that we can focus on what is important to us as an organization.

Since we started, we have provided over 460,000 nights at home for
our tenants. Think about that number! All of you at Tides are part of that success and thanks to you the number grows every day.

With gratitude, Lauren Hall, Project Director
Delivering Innovation in Supportive Housing

Our mission to help end homelessness in San Francisco can be a daunting task! The day-to-day support we get from Tides is what helps make each day of service to our tenants another day for them at home, and not on the streets.

Serve more nonprofit professionals and communities.

When I learned that the Tides Center used a Donor Advised Fund to transfer $2 million from Google to the Wikimedia Foundation, I was dismayed. The Wikimedia Foundation just pulled in 5 times what they need to safely operate and fulfill their mission, and now Google is going to heap another $2 million on the organization that lies about who its founder is and deflects and covers up criticism about how money was being handled when it came to $1300 steak dinners, $200 bottles of wine, and even Moscow massage parlor tabs. So now the Tides Center is aligned with Google (the National Security Agency's tech partner) and with the Wikimedia Foundation (the home of child pornography advocates). What impression can I possibly take away, other than a bad one? This was a BAD DECISION, Tides Center.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do anything but what it regrettably chose to do, and that's facilitate a multi-million dollar transfer of funds from Google, Inc. to the Wikimedia Foundation.

Sustainable Pittsburgh prospered in its start-up as a project of Tides over six formative years. Tides' expertise in HR, accounting, benefits administration, etc. enabled us to focus on our mission and program delivery. With this excellent experience, we continue to benefit from Tides expertise now contracting for some on-going administrative services. Kudos to Tides for its national mission and impact of cultivating nonprofits to serve.

the tremendous help and support. My appreciation for Tides Center has just hightened by five notches – from an already high point on the scale! I am confident we will have a fine workshop in two weeks thanks to help from Tides Center.

For a small project like ours, it reallly helped to be able to argue to a multimillion dollar organisation and won't be bullied. I think we managed to get a good compromise. Thank you all for your support.
