Every Dollar Donated Makes a Difference
For 25 years, we have been changing the realities of our communities by providing the access children need to achieve their dreams.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Our Mission

Good Tidings encourages and supports the growth of marginalized children in Northern California by creating environments for athletics, the arts, education and wonder.

We believe that every child deserves the access and the means to pursue their dreams. The Good Tidings Foundation aims to provide opportunities that otherwise would be unavailable to kids regardless of their financial status, ethnic origin, or religion. Our programs allow children to play, create, and dream.

Good Tidings recognizes that one of the best outlets for underserved youth is the ability to dream and create. In partnership and honor of LeRoy Neiman, we gift creative art studios to provide the youth of Northern California the ability to express themselves. Good Tidings has also built music studios with legendary artists such as Kenny Loggins and Jason Mraz.
