Tide Change has adopted a reader contribution revenue model based on that of The Guardian. We recognise that our readership is primarily made up of Comox Valley residents working within, or to support, local community groups and organisations. Along with individual contributions, we are adding a membership drive aimed at those local groups and orgs, as they are the ones benefiting most from our efforts.

Payments/Donations may be made by cheque or via PayPal.

  • If paying by cheque:
    • Please make check payable to: Pod Creative
    • Mail to: Pod Creative, 4040 Marsden Rd. Courtenay BC, V9N 9N7, Att: Tide Change
  • If paying via PayPal – Please note that after you make a PayPal payment to TideChange, you may be redirected to the Pod Creative website.  (Pod Creative  handles the finances for Tide Change).  This redirection is normal and your payment will have been successfully processed by PayPal.

Many thanks for your support.
