The From Now On Fund is a donor-advised fund established in 2016. Our fund is housed at the Tides Foundation which is a philanthropic partner and nonprofit accelerator dedicated to building a world of shared prosperity and social justice.
We believe that welcoming and respecting a diversity of experiences and voices will improve our grant making.
We believe that more effective and lasting change occurs when individuals and communities are actively engaged in decisions that affect them.
