Funding Information Network
Candid's network of libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers provides fundraising tools and training to local nonprofits.
About the network
Candid’s global network of partners connects nonprofits to the resources they need to thrive in the postal codes of every major U.S. city and many points in between.
The Funding Information Network program is nonprofit outreach "in-a-box," enabling organizations to become local nonprofit funding experts.
The program packages include access to our world-class research tool, Foundation Directory, product and training certification courses, support materials, and professional development opportunities all designed to strengthen your staff’s ability to assist your local nonprofit community. Want to support your local nonprofits and small businesses as the go-to fundraising resource in your community?
"As a Funding Information Network (FIN) Partner we are able to provide a community resource that would not otherwise be accessible to hundreds of nonprofit staff and other grantseekers in Maine."
