Their free databases allowed potential donors to make better choices and for researchers to find information on the activities and connections of the vast network of non-profit organizations operating in the United States.

Now those to resources are set to merge into a new service called "CANDID."

What is Candid?
Foundation Center and GuideStar joined forces to become Candid, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Candid connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to do it.



Why are you joining forces?

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’s data tools on nonprofits, foundations, and grants are the most comprehensive in the world.

Where are the Foundation Center and GuideStar websites?

We’re working on bringing all of our resources together. For now, you can access Foundation Center and GuideStar products and services through their websites.:
