Candid is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive data and insights about a social sector capable of tackling critical challenges and opportunities. Candid provides information in the Foundation Directory that helps nonprofit organizations find funders to support their work. Funders also look to GuideStar to verify and research nonprofit organizations that are aligned with their priorities.

Candid was formed in 2019 when GuideStar and Foundation Center merged. Information on Candid’s programs, financials, operations, and other services is available at nonprofit profile, audited financial statement, and annual report.

Candid offers both free services and fee-related services.

  • Over 99% of people who access data from Candid do so for free —there are more than 3 million users registered for free offerings.
  • Candid offers data for those with deeper analytical needs for a fee.
