We see a future in which

  • everyone speaks honestly about what they do, what works, and what can be improved
  • people and organizations can make the greatest impact
  • private resources are deployed more effectively toward the public good

We want to help people

  • evaluate and share their work and the work of others
  • have access to tools that help them do their best work
  • improve their skills so they can improve the world

Our story

For a combined 88 years, Foundation Center and GuideStar each helped change the world by giving people the information they needed to do good.

But the world faces growing challenges: polarization, climate change, technological revolution, and poverty and inequality. That’s why we combined our talent, technology, data, and leadership to become a new organization, Candid. Now, it’s easier than ever to get the information you need to create change.
