About this grant

This increase provides general support to Candid, an organization that collects, analyzes and publishes information on philanthropic and nonprofit entities. The grantee currently houses databases with 29,000 research reports and data on 2.8 million nonprofits and 235,000 foundations. The grantee provides training to nonprofits and foundations while producing and disseminating its own research. With this increase, the grantee will work with nonprofits to upload their data profiles, including demographic information, and engage with academia to increase research on nonprofits. Candid was founded in 2019, when Foundation Center and GuideStar merged into one entity, consolidating much of the nonprofit and philanthropic sector’s data.
