At Tides we offer support for families coping with the death of someone special to them. Children and adolescents from pre-school to age 18 and their adult family members come together to share their grief in a supportive setting. Our mission is to provide safe and nurturing peer support programming for children, adolescents and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one.

An Opportunity to Double your Donation—Koch Funeral Home Announces Matching Gift Program.

Tides is honored and grateful to announce a new partnership with Koch Funeral Home in forming a matching donation program! In honor of their 100th anniversary, Koch’s is creating a Designated Fund for Tides, through The Centre Foundation. They will make a dollar-for-dollar match up to $50,000.

The timeline for this campaign began in September 2013 and will conclude once the $50,000 goal is met or no later than September 30, 2018. We expect the matching program to generate a lot of excitement with our current and future donors.

In addition, Koch Funeral Home sponsored the State College Choral Society December Colors, Double Delights winter concert on December 14th and part of the proceeds went to Tides.

Tides cannot thank Koch Funeral Home enough for their generosity and look forward to a positive partnership!

Donations received since September 2013 will be counted in the matching program.

Tides would like to extend a big welcome to our new four-legged friends and their owners from Therapy Dogs International! Our hope is these dogs will provide a source of comfort to the families we serve. Lucy, Bella, Fancy, and Moose have all spent some time recently with us during programming sessions.
