Virtual, global, local

Candid’s information on the social sector travels well beyond the millions of users who come directly to our websites every year. Our reach is amplified exponentially by the hundreds of organizations, websites, communities, and donor-facing applications that share Candid’s information and resources with their tens of millions of users.  

For example, the leading and best-known donation, fundraising, and social networking websites use Candid as their source for information on nonprofit organizations, while trusted local organizations make our databases and trainings accessible to their communities.  

We take great pride in the vastness and diversity of our relationships with partners, supporters, and clients. While Candid’s framework on how we develop and maintain our network will continue to evolve, we’re pleased to spotlight some of the great organizations we work with and direct you to ways you can join in.
