Candid gathers and shares the most comprehensive and reliable data about the social sector

We collect data from the IRS and other government agencies around the world, from funders and nonprofits directly, and from many other sources. Every year, we gather information on more than 4 million grant records and hundreds of thousands of organizations to provide the field with the most accurate, timely and comprehensive information possible. This data is then cleaned and coded according to Candid's taxonomy, which makes it easy to find the information you need.
