There is a new Tides Fellows program is a new social entrepreneurship fellowship at Tides focused on research-based approaches to increasing innovation and capacity in non-profit organizations and philanthropy. Tides is a values-based, social change platform that leverages individual and institutional leadership and investment to positively impact local and global communities.
This year three Tides Fellows will each pursue a unique set of projects to support a broad progressive agenda. Anthony Jewett, Co-founder of the National Center for Global Engagement, will focus on helping Tides explore crowd-funding in the social sector, particularly for racial justice work. Gara LaMarche, former President and Chief Executive Officer of The Atlantic Philanthropies, will document his experience in various social movements toward his work examining the role of morality in philanthropy. Sonal Shah, former Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of the first White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, will focus her initial research on impact investing and developing tools for the philanthropic sector to better partner with the public and private sectors on critical social and economic issues.
