Living our values

Putting an end to systemic racism and hate-driven violence around the world will require nonprofits and foundations to step up like never before. Candid stands with our staff and communities affected by these injustices as we envision a social sector capable of tackling the critical challenges and opportunities of our time.

Candid is sharing regularly updated information on how philanthropy is responding to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, advancing racial equity, and safeguarding democracy. Driven by our core values and 2030 vision, we incorporate equity, inclusion, and respect for diverse perspectives in all of our work. By bringing you real-time funding data, news, research, analysis, and training opportunities, Candid provides you with the information you need to meet society’s toughest challenges.
