The Hometown Outreach Fund 

The Hometown Outreach Fund is a project of Tides Foundation and is a 501c3 public charity.

The Hometown Outreach Fund aims to support organizations and programs interested in promoting civic participation and engagement at the local level, particularly in underrepresented constituencies and communities.

Our programs create compelling ways to motivate individuals in hometowns across the country to understand the leadership positions in their community and how they impact our daily lives.

The primary issue areas for grant making are focused on representation, equality and human rights, with a geographic focus on domestic issues in states across the U.S. 

We seek to positively impact various constituencies including students, women, young adults, low income communities, multi-racial communities, LGBTQ, Latino/ Hispanic, and people with disabilities.

We are actively raising new funds to support programs.
