Type of SupportProject
The Center for Innovation in Education, a project housed at the Tides Center, provides advice and support to states and school districts in their efforts to make K-12 education more accountable for preparing students to succeed in college, career, and life. The Center works through partnerships, using assessment and accountability as levers for broader changes in the education system.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Open Contracting Partnership project
The Open Contracting Partnership engages governments and nongovernmental groups to establish and implement new global standards for transparency and broad participation in public contracting. The new standards will require that governments and companies disclose more contracts, that the information in the contracts is easily accessible and presented in user-friendly formats, and that citizens have opportunities to monitor contract award and execution processes. In addition to encouraging others to create and adopt these new norms, with this grant the Partnership would support country-level application of the principles and would facilitate learning among countries to ensure greater effectiveness in the use of public resources.
for support of the ReThink Media project
A grant to Tides for the ReThink Media project would bolster ReThink’s ability to provide media consulting, training, and assistance to organizations working on U.S. nuclear policy. We recognize the critical importance of sophisticated media strategy in meaningfully reaching policymakers, reporters, and the public and ReThink’s expertise in national security policy makes it the only such organization working with grantees to develop such a strategy.
