In February 2019, Foundation Center and GuideStar joined forces to become Candid, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Together, these two organizations bring a combined 88 years of expertise and millions of data points to Candid.​

Every year, millions of nonprofits spend trillions of dollars around the world. Candid finds out where that money comes from, where it goes, and why it matters. Through research, collaboration, and training, Candid connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to do it. Candid serves grantseekers, grantmakers, researchers, policymakers, the media, and the public.

Candid tools and resources can help you research and verify nonprofits, find funding, explore issues, improve your nonprofit, improve your foundation, and tell your story.
