Candid at Co.act

Candid Funding Information Network Partnership

Co.act Detroit is a Candid Funding Network Information Partner

As a member of Candid’s nationwide network of nonprofit serving agencies, Co.act Detroit provides our community with free public access to Candid’s applications and resources.

At our location, you can access Candid’s Foundation Directory, Grants to Individuals, and other resources to assist and strengthen your nonprofit organization.

Find Grants on Candid’s Foundation Directory

Candid’s Foundation Directory helps you find grants, decide if funders are a good match, and build your network. Since 90% of U.S. foundations do not have websites, the insights you need to find funders will not be discovered via standard search engines. You need up-to-date, in-depth information to reach the funders you want to support your mission.

Use the Foundation Directory when you sign up for Drop-In Work Day at Co.act Detroit!
