Study Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies

QUT Library a Candid Community Partner.  

Candid is a nonprofit that provides the most comprehensive data and insights about the social sector. Candid was formed in 2019 when GuideStar and Foundation Center merged.

Every year, millions of nonprofits spend trillions of dollars around the world. We find out where that money comes from, where it goes, and why it matters. Through research, collaboration, and training, Candid connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to do it.

As a Candid Community Partner, QUT Library provides public access to Candid’s electronic databases.  These information resources can be found on the Candid online collection for community grantseekers, fundraisers and philanthropists page.
