Invest In Impact.

We work with funders and donors who believe advocacy is a good investment with the highest potential to transform our systems and policies.

We provide the infrastructure and the expertise so our donor partners can create real change. We handle the nuts and bolts of giving, including due diligence, proposals, and reporting. Our deeper partnerships offer consulting on 501(c)(4) giving strategies and landscape research.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Grants Management

We support donors in choosing a giving model that works on their terms. We handle due diligence, IRS regulations, paperwork, and reporting. We're known for our rapid grantmaking to match the fast-paced work of movers and shakers on the ground. 

Strategic Advising

We know there's a lot of noise when you're choosing where to give. We are strategic navigators who understand the field and players. We can help you leverage your dollars to go father and deeper whether you looking at issues like voting rights or particular regions such as the South.

Innovative Models

We partner with you to support unconventional approaches to social change in the giving space. We've worked on partnerships where incubation and seed funds helped to fuel environmental justice movements, and have developed sustainable funding models to build long-term political power.

Airlift went from idea to reality in only three months. We couldn't have done it without the reliable fiscal infrastructure that Tides Advocacy provided. Having Tides Advocacy at our side gives us strength as we grow.
