As you may have heard, this past February, Foundation Center joined forces with GuideStar to become Candid, a single nonprofit organization committed to providing research, tools, and trainings to social sector professionals around the world. In the year ahead, Candid plans to reach even more communities through its 400+ Funding Information Network (FIN) partners in the United States and around the world. In the meantime, Foundation Center South, a Service of Candid, will become known as Candid South and will continue to develop game-changing training programs and convenings, but will be shifting the way we work to better serve Southern communities.

As part of this shift, we have already begun redirecting library customers to nearby FIN locations, and we are in the final stages of selecting our new home in Atlanta. Foundation Center South’s resource center at 133 Peachtree Street will close to the public on May 16. While our new location will not be open for public access, we will be increasing our presence in Southern communities. Some trainings will be hosted on-site at our new home, although an increased focus will be placed on bringing trainings to communities through local FINs.

Although this is a big change, our programming is still in full force. In the coming months, we have several new programs starting, as well as our rotational classes, which include:

  • Our 2019 Boys and Men of Color Executive Director Collaboration Circle (BMOC EDCC) applications are currently open! We are looking for a diverse pool of applicants from a variety of nonprofits and social institutions for the 2019 BMOC EDCC. Applicants should have a deep commitment to the complex needs of boys and men of color, a desire to implement effective programming, and an understanding of the crucial need for creative collaboration. Learn more, and apply here.
  • In May, we are launching a new cohort class! The Nonprofit Consultant Cohort is an innovative four-month training program that provides specialized and practical business development to jumpstart or boost your nonprofit consulting business. Learn from seasoned consultants how to turn your passion for service into a profitable career. Register online here.

These are just two of the amazing opportunities we have coming up. You can find additional information on upcoming events and programming at Foundation Center South on GrantSpace.
