Legacy Collections


We created the Legacy Collection service in response to the knowledge preservation needs of foundations that are spending down and social sector organizations that are ending operations. The service is also useful for capturing knowledge created through programs and initiatives that are being phased out.​

Legacy Collections act as a record of original knowledge production as well as lessons learned. Through this service, we aim to support continued learning in the field by supplying a publicly-accessible full-text collection long after spend/phase down.

What makes this service truly unique is that your Knowledge Center is part of a larger, networked knowledge management system. Add your knowledge assets to your Legacy Collection and they automatically become part of the collective intelligence of the social sector.


Deploy a Legacy Collection and leverage Candid’s technology to

1) quickly and easily create an institutional repository that showcases your legacy of learning and published works; and,

2) broadly share the contents housed in your Collection with Candid’s global audience and data partners like Worldcat — the world’s largest library system.
