Why should I attend Network Days?

At Network Days 2019 , you'll connect with your colleagues in the field, get a better understanding of Candid (formerly Foundation Center and GuideStar), and learn more about the products you rely on to serve your community, including Foundation Directory Online and Grants to Individuals. Register now.

Each year, FIN partners from across the country attend Network Days, our annual FIN partner conference to network, collaborate, and learn about philanthropy, nonprofit management, and fundraising from expert speakers. This conference is free of charge to our partners and serves to strengthen their skills, knowledge, and confidence in providing Candid’s resources directly to leaders and changemakers in their communities.

While Network Days is an in-person event, we also stream it live to ensure that it is accessible to all of our partners.
