Candid connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to do it. Candid provides data, knowledge and training on private foundations and 1.8 million U.S. nonprofit organizations. Candid’s databases provide detailed information on private foundations in the U.S. and abroad, including foundation grants, funder giving interests and types of support awarded, funder application and contact information, and information on the nonprofits who receive foundation and corporate grants.
