The Tides Foundation is an organization which uses a veneer of philanthropy to cloak its real purpose: laundering money to left wing causes.
In 2008 it was learned that Dale Rathke had embezzled nearly $1m dollars from the organization ACORN. Drummond Pike, founder of Tides, made a donation to make the organization whole.
The Tides Foundation is setting up and managing an endowment fund for Wikipedia/Wikimedia.
