In 2019, GuideStar and Foundation Center joined forces to become Candid, a new nonprofit organization. Candid maintains one of the most comprehensive databases in the U.S., offering a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the social sector. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance the knowledge of philanthropy and to connect people with the resources they need to succeed. 

Thousands of people use Candid's resources each day and are served in its network of more than 450 funding information centers located in public libraries, community foundations, and educational institutions nationwide and around the world.
