- The Tides Network contains five separate legal entities: Tides Center, Tides Advocacy, Tides Foundation, Tides Two Rivers Fund, and Tides Inc.
- The Tides Network serves as the “parent organization,” supporting the organizations “through executive leadership, staffing resources, financial management, legal and risk compliance, communications, and administrative services.”
- Since 1976, Tides has “scaled more than 1400 social ventures, fueled social change in 120+ countries, and mobilized over $3 billion for impact.” A number of these social ventures demonize Israel, promote antisemitic rhetoric, and lead BDS campaigns.
- The Tides Center was created by the Tides Network to manage fiscal sponsorships for “social change leaders and ventures.” It currently serves as a fiscal sponsor to 90 social ventures and granted $268.7 million in fiscal sponsorships in 2020.
- The Tides Center has provided funding to a number of highly biased and politicized NGOs active in the Arab-Israeli conflict including the Adalah Justice Project, Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), and Palestine Legal.
- In 2014, the Israeli NGO Adalah created the “Adalah Justice Project” (AJP), based in Boston, with the goal of transforming“ American perception, policy and practice in Palestine/Israel into a human rights approach that guarantees historical justice and equality for all.” Since its founding, AJP has been highly active in BDS campaigns and legal warfare.
- Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC) held events in support of Rasmea Odeh, referring to her as a “Palestinian American icon.” Rasmea Odeh, a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) operative was convicted for immigration fraud after concealing her role in two terrorist bombings in Israel. The PFLP is designated as a terrorist organization by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel.
- Palestine Legal is highly active in BDS campaigns, particularly on college and university campuses throughout the United States.
- In June 2021, the Tides Center published an article accusing Israel of “pursuing a form of apartheid,” “ethnic cleansing, and “settler colonialism.”
- The Tides Foundation serves as a “grantmaking organization primarily through the management of close to 400 donor advised funds.” In 2020, the Tides Foundation provided $619 million in grants to donor advised funds.
- The Tides Foundation has provided funding to a number of highly biased and politicized NGOs active in the Arab-Israeli conflict including American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), CODEPINK, Grassroots International, IfNotNow, Jewish Voice for Peace, and National Lawyers Guild.
- AFSC is a leader of BDS campaigns on campuses and churches in the United States.
- CCR is active in lawfare suits against Israel and Israeli officials (including Avi Dichter and Moshe Ya’alon); promotes anti-Israel BDS campaigns; urges the U.S. government to stop providing military aid to Israel; presents an entirely biased and distorted view of the conflict and utilizes highly politicized rhetoric, accusing Israel of “war crimes,” “crimes against humanity,” and other such allegations.
- CODEPINK is a leader of U.S.-based anti-Israel BDS campaigns.
- While Grassroots International states that it “stands with the nonviolent Palestinian struggle for self-determination and human rights, particularly the human rights to land, water and food sovereignty,” it provides funding to a number of NGOs active in the Arab-Israeli conflict with ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
- JVP’s strategy is to create “a wedge” within the American Jewish community, while working toward the goal of eliminating US economic, military, and political aid to Israel.
- National Lawyers Guild, a Marxist organization, engages in anti-Israel “lawfare,” using legal means to promote BDS as well the narrative of Israeli “war crimes” and “genocide.” It has launched a campaign to strip the Jewish National Fund (JNF) of its tax-exempt status in the U.S.
