Candid, formed from the merger of Foundation Center and Guidestar, is not only focused on providing information about grants opportunities for non-profits, but also aims at increasing transparency in the philanthropic world in general. To further this goal, they have created a system of Seals of Transparency, which make information about your nonprofit easily available to potential donors.
