For a combined 88 years, Foundation Center and GuideStar each helped change the world by giving people the information they needed to do good.

But the world faces growing challenges: polarization, climate change, technological revolution, and poverty and inequality. That’s why they combined their talent, technology, data, and leadership to become a new organization, Candid.

The Silver City Museum currently holds a Platinum Transparency Badge with Candid.
