How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

As a result of their involvement with Rising TIDE, the lives of many students have been holistically transformed. Many of our students experience improvement in their grades in school. We've had youth who became the first in their families to go to college. We've had youth who have experienced profound emotional healing.  We've had student employees who have since become successful in the workplace beyond Rising TIDE. It has been both wonderful and humbling to see the lives of youth transformed through Rising TIDE.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
