Last year, Foundation Center and GuideStar joined forces to become a new organization: Candid. The story of that year is complicated, optimistic, and to be continued. You can read about it here, in our first annual report.

What's in the report?

The report is the story of how we became Candid, both operationally and culturally. It shares insights into our fundraising, lessons from our special projects and programming, the minutia of integrating two data-heavy organizations, a flub that happened on launch day, and more. There’s even a crossword puzzle.

Why is it a PDF?

In this unprecedented moment, a lot of us are improvising. Candid is too. We had planned to publish and mail a special printed version of this report. But this isn’t the time to be sending things around the world. So this PDF preserves the spirit of our original plan and delivers it as efficiently and safely as possible.

What about accessibility?

Accessibility is important to us; it’s one of our values. We added metadata and alternative text to this file so the report can be accessed through screen readers like JAWS and NVDA. And of course, it works on any platform and is freely available to all. We also have this alternative version with simpler formatting.
