Candid does not give grants/donations, suggest specific funders, or approach them on your behalf. More about Candid’s mission. Please refer to the tips and websites in this article.



Most foundation funding is awarded to nonprofit organizations, not to individual grantseekers. However, Candid has gathered resources for individual grantseekers, including the tools and web sites..

Our Candid Learning website features various articles in the Knowledge Base that could be useful to you and your applicants:

In addition, we have separate articles for artists and students.

Grants to Individuals is our searchable database of grantmakers that give to individuals. It is available by subscription, or to use for free at our Funding Information Network locations.

Please visit Candid's Knowledge Services for useful tools and resources exclusively for grantmakers.
