Review for Tides Foundation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

Tides was a great help as I started GMT. The organization provided us with HR, accounting and legal help. Our major donors knew that the operations end of our project was going to meet their expectations for fiscal management and legal compliance. By outsourcing the work to Tides, I was able to focus more on the project and creating social impact. As we got bigger, some of the accounting and other bumps and DC office management complicated the relationship but overall Tides provides an invaluable service.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I was able to focus on my mission and vision of the other co-founders. We immediately hit the ground running. We focused on testing our value proposition instead of paperwork which can be a big bureaucratic mess ( we did that as we spun off 3 years later)
