What people are saying
Candid profiles help the sector take a leap forward from data and information about charities to powerful knowledge and insight to help us make informed decisions.

My experience being a board member at Village Enterprise, where we have a Platinum Seal, is that it’s made fundraising easier. The Platinum Seal helps us stand out since there are so many nonprofits for donors to choose from.

Our Candid profile probably saves us 40 hours a week. We’re constantly asked for our financials, details about our mission, and reviews. Sending people to our Nonprofit Profile frees us up to focus on our mission.
