Tides Canada serves individuals, families and institutions with services and expertise to assist giving away money to great charities.

Since 2000, Tides Canada's involvement has helped advance work in social justice, climate change, the economy and environment, habitat protection, domestic violence prevention, reforms of the charitable sector, and social finance.

Endswell Foundation is the founding and lead funder for Tides Canada, as well as a collaborator and advocate. Once Endswell is gone, Tides Canada will represent our long-term legacy. Shortly after Tides opened its doors, Endswell’s grants administration was shifted into their capable hands, capturing the administrative cost savings provided by this public foundation.

Tides Canada and Tides Canada Initiatives, previously known as Sage Centre, are important Canadian institutions. They provide national leadership for philanthropic support on pressing issues of the day, mentoring and supporting Canadians in placing their charitable funds effectively.
