Together with the commitment and inspiration of our employees, Parker Tide has provided organizational and financial resources to help make a difference in our communities.
A tuition-free Episcopal school for boys from traditionally underserved communities, the Bishop John T. Walker School fosters a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, spiritual foundation, and moral character that each boy will need as a student and a citizen. Working in close partnership with students and families, the School strives to create an environment where each boy is challenged to reach his full academic potential and receives support services which help to overcome barriers to achievement, including before and after care, three daily nutritious meals, health and dental screenings, and summer learning opportunities. The School strives to alter the educational and social trajectory of boys of color from neighborhoods east of Washington, DC’s Anacostia River and prepare them for leadership and service in their communities and well beyond.

The veteran’s canine therapy program with Veterans Moving Forward (VMF) is a nonprofit organization that provides trained assistance, service and skilled companion dogs to veterans overcoming physical and mental health challenges. Canine therapy has proven to make a meaningful difference for veterans facing challenges of rehabilitating into civilian life after the demands of their military service. The founders of VMF recognize the benefits that canine therapy can provide and hope to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our veterans and increase their safety and independence within their environment.

Parker Tide employees volunteer their time to help St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital through a Community Outreach and Workplace Giving Program. St. Jude is the only pediatric treatment and cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Learn more about St. Jude’s here.
