Foundation Center and GuideStar Merge

Foundation Center and GuideStar have merged into one organization called Candid. Foundation Center provides resources and tools to nonprofits including training and lists of funding opportunities. GuideStar provides information about nonprofits to prospective donors, foundations, and nonprofit leaders. 

Together, the two organizations aim to connect nonprofits, foundations, and donors to resources, tools, and information through their online platform. "Every year, millions of nonprofits spend trillions of dollars around the world," their new website states. "Candid finds out where that money comes from, where it goes, and why it matters."

Organizations can use the platform to research nonprofits, find funding, get verified, and stay up to date on funding and social issues.
