About this grant

The goal of this grant is to support the Foundation Center and GuideStar merger into the singular entity, Candid. Over time, both organizations have built a stable business model that provides data to millions while developing deep expertise and insight on the data. The grantee has made strides in centralizing its data and resources, as well as simplifying information gathering and analysis for practitioners, foundations, donors, and other stakeholders through its new website. This increase will enable the continued consolidation of the grantee’s business systems and databases, improvement of those systems, and integration of staff and organizational cultures. Candid is dedicated to fostering public understanding of the foundation field and nonprofit sectors by collecting, organizing, analyzing, and disseminating information on foundations, corporate giving, nonprofits, and related subjects.
