Candid (formerly The Foundation Center and Guidestar)

The Foundation Center has long been a leader in providing resources to the philanthropic community.  In 2019, TFC merged with Guidestar, another leader in this area, to form Candid. Their site includes a search form that returns basic information about private foundation funders, as well as links to their 990s. They offer a number of other fee-based services for foundation researchers.
